The Roman trade ships

From the time of ancient Rome many portrayals if trade ships have been discovered. They mostly seem to be of a similar type, being broad round vessels with a high stern and the stern-post bent inwards.

This model is based on a wreckage found on the seabed at the coast of Elba. The wreck is believed to be from 1st century B.C. It was investigated by the Gruppo Archeologico Elbano. The plans for the model have been drawn by the Associazione Navimodellisti Bolognesi.
