This image depicts an artist's interpretation of the largest naval battle between 250 confederate (hoplite) and 200 imperial (Persian) triremes.  The events took place in the Straits of Salamis, in September of 480 BC, as the Greeks resisted Persia's efforts to conquer the city-state of Athens (and, thereafter, subjugate all of Greece).
