The Trireme is the Greek arrow ship and is available at the Dock from the Classical Age in Age of Mythology.

Strategy Edit

Triremes are critical in gaining control of water as they are the only warship available in the Classical Age. They are also effective in sinking enemy transports. Once in the Heroic Age they will need support from other warships in order to be effective. They deal bonus damage against Hammer Ships and Transport Ships. Siege Ships will destroy them easily. Naval myth units and coastal siege weapons are also a large threat.

History Edit

This oared galley propelled the classical Greek city states, and Athens in particular, into a naval power. The trireme (trieres in Greek) was named because the oarsmen were stationed at 3 levels, allowing more men to fit on a smaller ship. A standard trireme was about 120 ft long, and manned by over 150 oarsmen. the ships could cover about 180 nautical miles at a constant speed of 7.5 knots. They also had square sails, which could not always be used on the temperamental Mediterranean Sea. During the wars with Persia, Athens alone commanded over 200 of these ships.
