The stamp and label of Armenia were issued for the 200th Anniversary of Admiral Lazar Serebryakov birth, and shows us a portrait of the Admiral with in the background and most probably a Russian warship not a name given, the only warship what I could find with a connection to the admiral was the POLTAVA launched in 1829, which he commanded from 1835 until 1836. If she is depict I am not sure?. On the label is a scene of a 19th century sea battle with a map of the Black Sea. Not given when this battle took place.
Lazar Serebryakov (Ghazar Artsatagortsian) by his birth name), born in 1795 was a Russian Navy Admiral of Armenian descent. He participated in the Russo-Turkish War, 1828-1829, serving in the Black Sea and Baltic fleets, commanding battleships. In 1838, he laid the foundation of the city of Novorossiysk. He also held top command positions during the Crimean war (1853-1856). He died in 1862.

From Mr. Gennadiy Sitnikov I received an image of a painting which shows one of the class of the POLTAVA of 1829.
There are too many differences between the image and the ship depict on the stamp that we can be sure the POLTAVE of 1829 is not depict.
