Description:

The model represents a Greek Trireme from the age of battle of Salamis (480 B.C.). The crew were 170 oarsmen and about 30 warriors. Under favourable conditions, trireme could fly at up to 12 miles per hour. The major weapon of the trireme was a bronze ram which penetrates the side of enemy vessels. Main propulsion was rowing. Sails were used only for lasting longer voyages. During battle the sails and the mast were lay down and the ship was powered only by oars.
