Venetian galea sottila, late 15th century. Detail from Vittore Carpaccio's Return of the Ambassadors to the English Court (1497–98),  Legend of Saint Ursula series. Accademia, Venice.

Reconstruction of an early 10th-century Byzantine bireme dromon by John H. Pryor, based on references in the Tactica of Emperor Leo VI the Wise. Notice the lateen sails, the full deck, the fore- and mid-castles, and the Greek fire siphon in the prow. The above-water spur is evident in the bow, while the captain's tent and the two steering oars are located at stern.
