And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth

Today's Phoenician galley question: what kind of ladders do you suppose they had leading down into "the sides of the ship"? They had rope ladders between the deck and the mast, but that's probably the only kind of ladder you can have for that purpose. Rope ladders are harder to climb, and you wouldn't ever need to move the ladder between the deck and the hold, so probably that would be a wooden ladder, don't you think? The bonus of a rope ladder is that I could make it the kind with wooden rungs: a Jacob's ladder!
