"black ships before troy?"

 

Being that the galley is of the Bireme - Aphract ('open') design that is good assumption. It is the same design that is often depicted on 'geometric' pottery found from Archaic period tombs on down into the Mycenean tombs...

 

I saw one of these described as being of the 4th Century BC. Rubbish if you ask me.
