The Tikkye of Hala Sultan, 1908

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Fisher 8/1123

Scope and Contents

Quarter-plate (landscape format). Behind is seen Stavra Vouni, Santa Croce Mountain. The lake in front is salt, and when dry, as it becomes every summer, the salt residue is dug and piled in heaps. The aunt of Mohammed is buried here: she came here to make war: some say she was wounded by the enemy, some say that her horse got shy and fell and that she was killed in that way.


  • Creation: 1908
