Our best-selling bronze boat. Inspired by the penteconter, a forerunner of the Athenian bireme and trireme, an ancient Greek galley, used since the archaic period.
The penteconter was a long range ship, used for sea trade, piracy, warfare and exploration, capable of transporting freight or troops.
The evil-eye on the side of the hull, a common motif, designed to warn and frighten the enemy.
