Actually I was able to trace the frigate.

Ismail Gibraltar was at least in January 1818 with a friogate AFRICA. He stayed in Sweden in summer, purchasing many miltary equipement, including many cannons. For transport were 3 or 4 ships purchased. One of them was a frigate built especially to hios orders.

She was built in 1818 at Carlscrona Naval shipyard
as a "merchant vessel" "La bella Svezia". Left in Dez 1819 Sweden. Sailed tuo Leghorn, then in mid 1919 to Alexandria.

In Riksarkivet in Sweden there is a desing of 1816 of a frigete of 48 guns by Ringheim. Was she built asccording to that design?

There is another design of 250 Lasts frigate of 1818

In 1821 the Egyptian frigate Diana aka Bella Diana, has undergone a complete repair at Deptford. There aslso her liunes taken by the RN in NMM collection. Very probablos , she was the same ship.
