dear all, my friend Andrew was so kind to share some nice pics of Olympias under oars. I am so envious of him… Find the here: link

Thanks! Those are really interesting, especially the belowdecks pictures of the rowers.

they look like human pistons in a gigantic muscle-propelled engine!

Very interesting, especially the facts that the female oarsmen seemed to be on the lowest level and the VERY limited deck space. Now I understand why they only carried ten marines.

Nice photos! The Olympias was one of several things I was frustrated to have missed while in Athens.
