A liburnian or liburna was a type of small galley used for raiding and patrols, particularly by the Illyrians and the Roman navy. Liburnians were different from the battle triremes, quadriremes and quinqueremes not because of rowing but rather because of its specific constructional features. It was 109 ft (33 m) long and 5 m (16 ft) wide with a 1 m (3 ft 3 in) draft. Two rows of oarsmen pulled 18 oars per side. The ship could make up to 14 knots under sail and more than 7 under oars. Gradually liburnians became a general name for the different types of the Roman ships, attached also to cargo ships in Late Antiquity.
