Phantom Ship.
 
(See CARMILHAN.)   1
       
“Or of that phantom ship, whose form
Shoots like a meteor through the storm;
When the dark scud comes driving hard,
And lowered is every topsail yard …
And well the doomed spectators know
’Tis harbinger of wreck and woe.”
       
Sir Walter Scott: Rokeby, ii. 11.
 


 Phaleg,Pha’on.
