What was the typical attack method of Roman Navy?

ramming
boarding
using fireships
using spearers
Since the Romans were pri­mar­i­ly a land-based army, they lost several sea battles due to lack of naval skills. The corvus, a boarding ramp with two steel spikes, was the Roman answer to this problem. It secured Roman naval dom­i­nance in the Mediter­ranean Sea for several cen­turies.
