Navire Egyptien Antique by Lorn6 Navire Egyptien Antique by Lorn6
. . . (Translation below)

Navire égyptien Antique (5e Dynastie, ±2.500 ans avant notre ère.)

La construction des navires aux temps de l'Égypte Antique est intéressante à  plus d'un titre, principalement sur le plan historique car il s'agit de l'art de construction navale le plus ancien que l'on puisse connaître dans les moindres détails et dont on peut suivre le développement en continu sur près de trois mille ans. Dans la vallée du Nil, tous les transports de grande importance se faisaient sur le fleuve et c'était la structure et l'efficacité de la flotte du Nil qui défendait la sécurité et la stabilité de la nation. La flotte Égyptienne a joué un rôle décisif non seulement dans la vallée du Nil, mais aussi en Méditerranée et dans la mer Rouge, en maintenant des trafics et des communications régulières, principalement avec le Liban, d'où tous les bois de construction étaient importés. Il est connu que le cêdre du Liban fut importé même durant la période Thinite (1e et 2e dynastie) et il est probable que les transports étaient effectués par des navires Égyptiens. Sur le site de Saqqarah, près de la pyramide à  degrés de Djoser, aussi appelée pyramide d'Abousir, des bas-reliefs très instructifs montrant le retour d'une flotte ont été découverts en 1821 par M. Girolamo SEGATO dans le temple funêbre (mastaba) du Pharaon SAHOURÊ (5e dynastie, il règna de -2496 à -2483). Un texte mentionne que les bateaux, envoyés au pays de Punt (Somalie ?) dans la treizième année de règne du Roi SAHOURÊ, revinrent avec 80.000 mesures de myrrhe, 6.000 mesures d'Électrum (un alliage naturel d'or et d'argent) et 2.600 grumes d'un bois rare (probablement de l'ébène). Ces gravures sont très soigneusement exécutées et à  partir de celles-ci une parfaite reconstruction de ce type de bateau à coque cousue a été possible. On sait aussi qu'à  cette période huit navires de ce type servirent de transport de troupes lors d'une attaque des côtes syriennes.

:flaguk: Ancient Egyptian Ship (5th Dynasty. ± 2.500 years BC)

The construction of the ships at times of Ancient Egypt is interesting in more than one way, mainly on the historical level because it acts of the oldest art of shipbuilding which one can know in depth and which one can follow the uninterrupted development on nearly three thousand years. In the valley of the Nile, all transport of great importance was done on the river and it was of the structure and effectiveness of the fleet of the Nile which depended the safety and the stability of the nation. The Egyptian fleet played a decisive part not only in the valley of the Nile, but also in the Mediterranean and in the Red Sea, by maintaining traffics and regular communications, mainly with Lebanon, from where all the construction timbers were imported. It is known that the cedar of Lebanon was imported even during the Thinite time (1st and 2nd dynasty) and it is probable that transport was accomplished by Egyptians ships. On the site of Saqqarah, in the pyramid with degrees of Djoser, also called pyramid of Abousir, the very instructive low-relief showing the return of a fleet discovered in 1821 per Mr. Girolamo SEGATO in the funeral temple (Mastaba) of King SAHURÊ (of the 5th dynasty, it reigned from -2496 to -2483), a text mentions that boats sent to Punt (Somalia?) in the thirteenth year of reign of King SAHURÊ, returned with 80,000 measurements of myrrh, 6,000 measurements of electrum (a natural alloy of gold and silver) and 2,600 rare timbers (probably of ebony). Engravings of the ships are very carefully carried out and from those a perfect rebuilding of this type of boat with sewed hull was possible. It is also known that at that time, eight ships of this type were used to transport troops for an attack on the Syrian coasts.
