In the case of the Greeks before more than 2500 years the Bireme always was used. The impressing ship only served as a battle ship, how the huge thorn on the bow shows. It was jut above the water and used for ramming other ships with a high tempo and really stabbing them. On both sides of the ship were the oars on shifted banks in two rows on the top of each other for using the incredibly long oars effectively. Skilled rowers as well could use the Bireme only with the oars.
