This article is about Silanos, a member of the Cult of Kosmos. You may be looking for Silenos, a figure in Greek mythology.
"We will destroy your statues. We will burn down your temples if that's what it takes to rid the world of rodents like you."
―Silanos of Paros[src]

Silanos of Paros (died 429 BCE) was a member of the Peloponnesian League branch of the Cult of Kosmos during the Peloponnesian War.

Biography

When Silanos discovered the whereabouts of Myrrine, and that she had become the leader of Naxos Island, the Cult disposed of the leader of the neighboring Paros Island so that Silanos could take his place. Silanos also posed as an Athenian strategos in order to get the people of Paros behind his plan to take down Myrrine and claim the Naxos Island.[1]

Along the way, Silanos ambushed and captured an admiral who was close to Myrrine, Euneas. Silanos' men attempted to break Euneas so that he would betray Naxos and Myrrine. Before that could happen, though, the Spartan misthios Kassandra rescued Euneas.[2]

After foiling the Cult's assassination attempt on Myrrine's life, Kassandra joined Myrrine's Spartan forces aboard the Adrestia and they faced the Parian fleet, with Silanos captaining the trireme the Amber Dawn. Over the course of the conflict, the Adrestia sunk the Amber Dawn, and Kassandra killed Silanos.[3]

Trivia

  • In the novel Silanos dies from losing his lower half when thrown from his ship after being rammed by the Adrestia. He lives just long enough to realize his entrails are being eaten by fish before succumbing.
  • Silanos, much like the members of the Gods of the Aegean Sea branch, does not have to have his death "confirmed" by the player; as he is fought at sea, the player can simply sink his ship rather than board it, which will still result in the rewards specific to killing Silanos being issued.
