Map - The Battle Of Salamis 480 B.C.
The Battle of Salamis was organized by Themisotcles who believed that the Athenian fleets were the "wooden walls" the oracle spoke of in order to defeat the Persians. During this battle King Xeres sat in a golden throne watching his fleets lose the battle. A famous quote from Xeres during this battle was "My men have become women, and women men." He exclaimed this because Queen Artemisia of Halicarnassus, a Greek who was fighting for the Persians, rammed a Persian ship in order to escape.
