Description

This photograph of the Straights of Salamis was taken from Piraeus, Greece. The Straights of Salamis was the site of the famous navel battle between a loose confederation of ancient Greek city-states (commanded by the Athenian, Themistocles) and the fleets of the Persian Empire. Taking place in the same year (i.e. 480 BCE) Xerxes invaded the Greek mainland with his vast army, the Battle of Salamis proved to be a decisive victory for the confederate forces of the Greeks.
