Traditional Greek sailing ship using a "Sakoleva” sail - a special type of square sail, with common use in Aegean Sea and most of the Eastern Mediterranean ports. The original word “Sakolefea” as a type of sail, is first encountered in Byzantine texts and was originally used to denote some kind of a cloak. Because of this unique sail, any kind of vessel having this rigging is named as “Sakoleva”.
