description: Lots of information about At first the current of the Persian host Withstood; but when within the strait the throng
Of ships was gathered, and they could not aid
Each other, but by their own brazen bows
Were struck, they shattered all our naval host.
The Grecian vessels not unskillfully
Were smiting round about; the hulls of ships
Covered with wreckage and the death of men; The reefs and headlands were with corpses filled, And in disordered flight each ship was rowed, As many as were of the Persian host.
But they, like tunnies or some shoal of fish, With broken oars and fragments of the wrecks
Struck us and clove us; and at once a cry Of lamentation filled the briny sea,
Till the black darkness' eye did rescue us. The number of our griefs, not though ten days
I talked together, could I fully tell; But this know well, that never in one day
Perished so great a multitude of men.

By no means sought to issue forth unseen.
But when indeed the day with her white steeds Held all the earth, resplendent to behold,

Of song triumphant came; and shrill at once Echo responded from the island rock.
