The bireme is a
type of ancient ship which was supposedly invented by
the Phoenicians and extensively used by the Romans.
A bireme is also basically a Greek ship which has two
sets of oars on each of its sides. In the name bireme,
“bi” stands for two and “reme” stands for oars.
Strong and beautiful sailing ships, biremes were used
extensively for both naval wars and transportation
The usage of bireme dates back to 250-400 BC when they
were used for the first time as warships. Biremes
at that time measured only a few meters in length but
were tough and powerful. Bireme was also used
extensively by the Greeks during the famous Trojan War.
