I am currently writing a journal article, which focuses on three very unusual grave stele (funerary markers) from the Aegean. On these grave stele, the very moment of death (by drowning) is represented. The goal of the article is to understand why someone might have chosen this kind of image, and how such iconography links into the ancient understanding of sea-faring and travel.
