Latini is the triangular sail used on small boats from the ancient times and later in the 9th century A.D.. The boat Latini is a sailing ship with the latini  in diagonal antenna, on its mast. The origin of the sail is not known, but is commonly believed that it was used by small ships in the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Indian Ocean. The most likely version is that the Byzantines first took advantage of  these sails in their large ships.

The Canakkale (Dardanelles) ceramics were made of red earthenware with light yellow glaze, and they date back  to the late 18th century and the early 19th century. The plates came in various sizes with unique decorative patterns of ships, house and animals, painted usually in brown and placed at the center of the plates.

Byzantine dishes from Çanakkale (Dardanelles) are exhibited at the Museum of Byzantine culture in Thessaloniki and at the Benaki Museum and the Byzantine and Christian Museum in Athens.
