Nitherian word: tyalathyon “galley”

From: Old Maritime tjaladjon, literally “centipede”, from tjal “thirty-six” + dja “leg”.

Both sailing ships and galleys (oar-propelled ships) were used on the Poslo Sea. Sailing ships predominated in the summer and winter, when winds were reliable, while the inconsistent and weak winds in the spring and fall favoured galleys.

Example:

Movoslaslwi yo tyalathyon.
