From the Geometric period at the latest ships and parts of ships in their original state, in three-dimensional copies and as two-dimensional depictions were offered in sanctuaries to different deities. Here, the meaning of the element »ship« varies, dependent upon the form and embedment of the votive. The present paper deals with the question of in which form offerings involving ships occur, sketches out for the 1st millennium B.C. their distribution in the central and southern Greek region and identifies a series of questions and problems connected to the theme.
