I added a larger cargo ship to the fleet, modeled on what the Greeks called an akatos. It was a fairly large, mixed sail and oars cargo with a prow similar to a warship.

Here you find more photos including that of the model, a graffito of a Roman actuaria (same as akatos) found in Pompei.

Also, this was the final model of the mini-fleet, which is now at 4 triremes and 2 cargo. Yesterday I brought to a friend and I should have the first test in metal printed within a couple of week. Crossing my finger!
