GREEK BIREME

The bireme is a type of ancient ship which was supposedly invented by the Phoenicians and extensively used by the Romans.  A bireme is also basically a Greek ship which has two sets of oars on each of its sides. In the name bireme, “bi” stands for two and “reme” stands for oars.  Strong and beautiful sailing ships, biremes were used extensively for both naval wars and transportation purposes.

The usage of bireme dates back to 250-400 BC when they were used for the first time as warships.  Biremes at that time measured only a few meters in length but were tough and powerful.  Bireme was also used extensively by the Greeks during the famous Trojan War.
