8. Boats

This is a common setting for various figures and groups, and for the most part the scarabs with boats are listed according to whom they carry. I list here a few which are more indeterminate. Others are 2E; 2/X6, 8, 9; 6/71, 72, X9; 11/27, 79, X4, 6, 30, 33, 35; 12/23, 29-31, 35; 15/45; 17/62.
