Trireme Olympias of the Hellenic Navy

Trireme Olympias of the Hellenic Navy
Olympias is a reconstruction of an ancient Athenian trireme.
She was constructed from 1985 to 1987 by a shipbuilder in Piraeus. Finance came from the Hellenic Navy and donors such as Frank Welsh (a Suffolk banker, writer and trireme enthusiast).

Very interesting to see these pictures. On a note of utter trivia, I strongly suspect this ship featured in an episode of the Inspector Morse TV detective series from 1991, "Greeks Bearing Gifts"!
