Navicella (mosaic)[edit]

1628 full-size copy in oil in the Vatican

Created by Johnbod (talk). Self nominated at 01:32, 1 June 2013 (UTC).


31 x 43 sf is referenced = 1,333 sf area. Johnbod (talk) 01:39, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment: You should include square metres too. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:29, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough and long enough and the image is in the public domain. It is altogether satisfactory except that there is no inline citation for the hook fact. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:15, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
As my original comment says "31 x 43 sf is referenced = 1,333 sf area". There is precedent that it not necessary to give or reference a simple sum, like the time between two dates. Johnbod (talk) 13:34, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
I was not bothered by the size of the original mosaic but by the fact that only two small fragments remain. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 17:39, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Section 3, called "Fragments"? Are you concerned that the ref is not near enough to the fact? It certainly is referenced to 3 sources, all available online. I have added a ref just after the fact. Johnbod (talk) 18:12, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg That's fine. Ready to go. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:00, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
  • The relevant DYK rule states "The "Did you know?" fact must be mentioned in the article and cited with an inline citation since inline citations are used to support specific statements in an article. Many submissions fail to meet one or both of these criteria."
