"Athens built the Delos as a symbol of their alliance, and it galvanizes the mood of their troops. Hit them where it hurts and clear it from the horizon."

The Delos

The Delos was a military trireme constructed by the Athenian navy and deployed during the Peloponnesian War.

History

The Delos was regarded as the greatest ship in the Athenian fleet. Despite this, the trireme was destroyed by the Adrestia commanded by the misthios Kassandra, who claimed the ship's sails and finery for her own during the Peloponnesian War.[1]

Trivia

  • The stylized dolphin adorning the finery of the Delos seems to be based on an Etruscan stamnos from the 4th century BCE.
