The three ancient harbours of the Piraeus


The trireme shipsheds of Zea reconstructed as a model in Piraeus Museum.


Reconstructed view of the three ancient harbours of the Piraeus: Kantharos (today the main harbour), Zea (also called Pashalimani in modern times) and Mounychia (modern Mikrolimano). Note the ship sailing through the fortified harbour mouth of Kantharos.
