Trireme Ships: The Fleet of Athens, Ancient Athens

Thus then did they fight as it were a flaming fire. Meanwhile the fleet runner Antilochus, who had been sent as messenger, reached Achilles, and found him sitting by his tall ships and boding that which was indeed too surely true.
Homer, The Iliad

Here the hero came
With the head
That shocked a royal house, turning
King and all into stone:
It was long long ago, if
Time means anything;
Long, long ago.
Pindar, The Hyperboreans From Pythian X

Epic Ancient Greek Music, Aima

Pirates Of The Caribbean ‐ Live In Prague, Hans Zimmer

Benedictus, Karl Jenkins

Excellent artistic impression of the Athens naval power in the Mediterranean about 500 BC, John!
Thanks for this wonderful render, the very interesting two links, the quote and poem, and the music links. A very tasty four course dinner, if you know what I mean, 😁 !

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

Having read several Steven Pressfield books, about the Roman Empire, the battle of Thermopylae, and the Golden Age of Greece, in which these ships played a definite part, I find your image and its title to be right on the money. An immediate save and fave for me.
