The Porphyrion

The Porphyrion was a pirate trireme sailing the Aegean Sea 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 Porphyrion and his companions in battle, and sank it. Kassandra claimed the sail and finery of Porphyrion for her own.[1]


  • The ship is named after the Giant Porphyrion in Greek mythology.
  • Despite the name and the association with the Giant, the sails and finery feature a gorgon's face.
