Trireme Olympias on show at Zea marina in Piraeus

On-duty crew members stand on the deck of the Olympias, a reproduction of an ancient Athenian trireme, after it anchored at the Zea marina in Piraeus on Wednesday. The Olympias was constructed in 1985 and was mainly used for experimental archaeology trips until 2004, when it was used to transfer the Olympic Flame from Keratsini to Piraeus for the Athens Games. The trireme will remain anchored at the Zea marina through Sunday and will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5.30 until 8.30 p.m. [Orestis Panagiotou/EPA]
