The dromons were the most important warships of the
Byzantine navy from the 6th to 12th centuries AD.
They had a central tower near the
main mast, from which the marines could use their
bow and arrows or throw spears and other
projectiles. Dromons were frequently equipped with
flamethrowers that discharged Greek fire and
catapults capable of hurling 10 kg projectiles up to
250 meters. Many dromons were also
armor-plated against enemy rams.
