trireme rower shirt for Olympias sea trials

A reconstruction of an ancient Greek trireme, the Olympias, had its first sea trials off the Greek island of Poros in 1987. The emblem above is from the participants’ t-shirt.  It shows the three different designs of oars, one for each level of rowers.  Given the project leaders’ deep classical learning, the graphic design of the ship is probably based on an ancient pottery decoration.
