ORGANIZATION OF THE LATE-ROMAN FLEET AND ITS ROLE IN MILITARY SYSTEM OF THE EMPIRE

Bannikov Andrei Valer'evich
Saint Petersburg State University


Abstract. In the III century the main body of the regular navy of the period of the Principate ceased to exist. In the IV century the Romans sometimes built large squadrons, but the attempts to keep such units on a regular basis were not taken. Military shipbuilding during this period experienced clear decline. The lack of experienced engineers and skilled ships crews was the reason of the fact that the Romans could only create very small vessels of the simplest structure.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , , , , , Late Roman Empire, fleet, flotilla, squadron, ships, the Rhine, the Danube, liburnians, lusoriae, scafae.
