26. Greek (Rhodes) Tile – The Grand Master’s Palace

Rhodes (Greece) 20th - Private Collection Athens Greece

I.C.A.R.O. tile with the image of Grand Master’s palace in Rhodes. Inscription with the date “Rodi Il 1.1.1943”, and the wish “Buon Anno” (Happy New Year) on it. From 1310 to 1522 the Order of the Knights of Saint John was settled in the island. Rhodes appears to have gained by their presence, because piracy, widely spread on sea and land, diminished and commerce was rapidly increased.
