The Saetia was a sharp-prowed, single-decked merchant sailing vessel found in the Mediterranean (more in the Levant than in the Western Mediterranean), in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although they usually had two lateen-rigged masts on occasion they were re-rigged to take advantage of constant winds with a square rig, as depicted here.
