The Sea-coast

90. Why did (Dan) remain in ships?

Herbert Donner (The Mosaic Map of Madaba, Kampen 1992, 55)
Some smaller red letters below the name of the tribe quote a verset of Deborah's song (Judg.5,17). The song of Deborah seems to refer to the Phoenician merchant marine; the mosaicist, however, thinks of the Mediterranean which is nearby. He put this phrase at the first tribal area of Dan, although Judg. 5,17 presumes the second one (Judg.17-18).
