It has just now occurred to me that banks of oars extended to either
side of a penteconter (for example) may have a winglike appearance and
movement when viewed from before or abaft and have plenty of textev that
vessels equipped with ranks of oars and oarsmen are familiar sights in
the Commonwealth. This would even avoid violating the heraldric rule
for wing placement in re volant.
