The Roman navy (Latin: Classis, lit. 'fleet') comprised the naval forces of the ancient Roman state. Throughout their history, the Romans remained a primarily land-based people and relied partially on their more nautically inclined subjects, such as the Greeks and the Egyptians, to build their ships.

The Roman Imperial Navy was the most powerful maritime force ever to have existed, prior to the European naval . And yet these warships, the very tools that allowed the Roman Navy to dominate the seas, have remained largely unstudied.
The Roman Imperial Navy was the most powerful maritime force ever to have existed, prior to the European naval development of relatively recent centuries. It was able to deploy huge fleets and dominate the seas around western Europe, north Africa, and the Middle East, as well as the great rivers that formed a large part of the eastern boundary of the Roman world. It secured the trade routes and maintained the communications that allowed the Roman Empire to exist.
Roman Warships, Michael Pitassi. The Roman navy operated hundreds if not thousands of warships over a period of nearly nine hundred years, but very little is known about those ships. The written sources mention plenty of types of warships, but without providing much extra information. Pitassi's approach to this problem is to start from the physical limitations of an oar-powered warship - the amount of space needed for each rower, the length and angle of the oars and the efficiency of different arrangements (generally speaking two men each with their own oar provide more power than two men on a single oar).
Pitassi has produced an admirable work on the Roman warship. This book is recommended for the students of ancient warfare, maritime history, and Roman culture.
Extremely valuable as a guide to approaching the reconstruction of part of the past. Pitassi has produced an admirable work on the Roman warship.
