Here's an article from the guardian about a Nile shipwreck that confirms Herodotus was right in his description of a “Baris” vessel. Here's the link for those who are interested.
Alexander Belov, whose book on the wreck, Ship 17: a Baris from Thonis-Heracleion, is published this month, suggests that the wreck’s nautical architecture is so close to Herodotus’s description, it could have been made in the very shipyard that he visited. Word-by-word analysis of his text demonstrates that almost every detail corresponds “exactly to the evidence”.
