"The Korinthians, inventors of the trireme, just sent their new ship, the Tyrant, on its maiden voyage. Rumor has it this ship will redefine Spartan naval warfare. Someone should test that theory."
―Description of the ship on the message board[src]

The Tyrant

The Tyrant was a Spartan trireme which traversed the Aegean Sea during the Peloponnesian War. It was a type of new ship designed by the Korinthians for their Spartan allies.

Sometime between 429 and 422 BCE, the ship was destroyed by the Adrestia, a trireme commanded by the Spartan misthios Kassandra. Kassandra claimed the sails and finery of the Tyrant for her own.[1]


  • Despite the flavor texts referencing Sparta and Korinthia, the design of the Tyrant features the shield emblem associated with Boeotia.
