When Athens got 5s

The Zea Harbour Project ( Danish Institute at Athens ) is an interesting ongoing project.

Recent excavations have found open slipways suitable for 5s to be hauled up on.

They date to  320s bc presumably and make a nice contribution to knowledge of the later Athenian navy. Maybe open slipways indicate the sheds inside the harbour were still used for 3s or 4s?

Video of the project in a nutshell.

Anyone else see the Angus McBride connection within the website?
