“The trireme and the Battle of Salamis”
Exhibition at Eugenides Foundation
The Eugenides Foundation proudly presents the special exhibition “The Trireme and the Battle of Salamis”, celebrating the 2500-year anniversary from the historic battle.
The exhibition prompts us to consider:
– How did the trireme evolve into the most effective weapon of antiquity and what role did it play in the victory of the Greeks?
– What do we really know about the trireme and the naval battle of Salamis from the surviving sources?
– How new technologies help us approach the historical past?
Based on historical documentation and using state-of-the-art technologies, the exhibition focuses on the presentation of the trireme as a historic ship of particular importance, as well as on aspects and the naval battle. The exhibition features digital ship plans, a 3D-printed trireme model, virtual reality applications and games for our younger visitors.
A virtual version of the exhibition is now available!
