Summary

Description
Deutsch: Reconstructional proposal of a Roman triremis. Side view. Showing all constructions at the same time (tower) and masts). During battle, only the tower was erect, but masts and sails were left at a nearby beach camp. The triremis was a type of warship, and each oar section on a side was manned with three rowers. In this case, since the ship has only one line of oars, each individual oar was manned with three rowers. Usually, the most inner rower was the experienced one and was responsible for the right coordination of this oar's movement. The deck construction (here the tower, called "Lignea castrum") was of very light construction (thin lumber, pre-assembled parts for fasted assembly on deck) and gave a superior shooting position to archers, stone throwers or to ballista crews. The color code of the towers could indicate to which fleet a ship belonged. The star of this ship is unusual for a Roman ship, because it does not feature a volute and symbolized fish fin, but the long neck of a bird (a goose?). It might be a possibility that this ship resembles not a ship of the Roman navy, but of the combined Roman/Egyptian navy of Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra, as it is known that Egyptian ships had a lot of decoration resembling animals, often holy animals. Please find more information, as soon as uploaded, at the Forum Navis Romana (http://terraromana.org/navis/Forum/index.php).
