GREEK TRIREME - Daniel Salaverría
480 BC - Fast and easily maneuverable vessels propelled by around 70 oarsmen
in groups of three (which accounts for the name "trireme", from
Latin "tri", three, and "remus", oar). Their main
armament was the fore ram. Their stern ended in an ornamental fish tail
set. Length estimated at 35.00-40.00 m, and breadth at 4.5 m.
