The Olympias is a modern reconstruction of an ancient Greek trireme, the state-of-the-art warship in the classical period. The trireme had sails, but they weren't used in battle. The ship was propelled by 170 oarsmen, who sat in three tiers on either side of the vessel in very tight, uncomfortable conditions. Athens had a fleet of 200 triremes in 480, when the Persians invaded under Xerxes.
