[22] That, I think, would be the best way of providing and organizing the money, the hulls, the trierarchs, and the calling in of the ships' gear.1

I now proceed to describe a clear and easy way of manning the ships. I suggest that the generals should divide the dockyards into ten areas, so arranging it that there may be dock-room in each for thirty ships, as close together as possible, and that when they have done this, they should apportion two boards and thirty galleys to each area, and then assign the tribes by lot to the areas.

1 The following table may make this paragraph clearer. Column A represents the totals, B the boards, C the groups.

300 15
No. of ships required 200 10 2
100 5 1
No. of trierarchs 1200 60 12
Capital represented (in talents) 6000 300 60
