Just an attempt to draw some Medieval warships, and ofcourse some of the most unknown and overlooked!
So my first drawing is a Dromon, unknown exactly date but something between 500-1000 AD.
A dromon (from Greek dromōn, "runner") was a type of galley and the most important warship of the Byzantine navy from the 5th to 12th centuries AD, when they were succeeded by Italian-style galleys. It was developed from the ancient liburnian, which was the mainstay of the Roman navy during the Empire. The ship size varies form 30m up to 50 m and from 50 oars to 100 oars.
More versions of the Dromon are to be drawn in the future. Any info or more accurate ideas are welcome.
Ofcourse if somebody likes to add his drawing on this post...go ahead!
