Picenian Ship Novilara 1:35MA910
These Picenian ships were built in the 6th century BC along the coast of present day Croatia and Italy by Picentes and Liburnians. The ships sailed the entire Adriatic Sea and were used for both trade and warfare.
Archaeologists were able to reconstruct an image of what these ships looked like from a stone tablet found near ancient Pisaurum (modern day Pesaro in Italy). This ancient tablet shows a battle between Picene and Liburnian fleets, both using these same ships.
This model of a Picenian Ship has a rostrum (a ram) which was used to pierce the hulls of enemy ships in battle.
