"Sailing from the southeast, the pirate ship Palaityros constantly harasses merchant boats and disrupts trade around the world. Put an end to its mischief."
―Description of the ship on the message board[src]

The Palaityros

The Palaityros was a great pirate trireme sailing the Aegean Sea south of Messenia with lesser pirate vessels during the 5th century BCE.

During the Peloponnesian War the Adrestia, commanded by the Spartan misthios Kassandra and captained by Barnabas, engaged the Palaityros and her companions in battle, and sank it. Kassandra claimed the sail and finery of Palaityros for her own.[1]

Trivia

  • Palaityros, Greek for 'Old Tyre', is a former name for Tyre, a district capital in Lebanon, fitting the ship's description as being 'from the southeast.'
