BYZANTINE DROMON

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.

 



                       

 


              


This Dromon model was constructed from wood and metal, with
Plank-on-frame method.  It was built based on a 832-page book titled The Age of the Dromon: The Byzantine Navy ca 500-1204.  Note the beautiful stern that only true master craftsmen can make.
