ON THE TOMB OF THEMISTOCLES, by            
First Line: By the sea's margin, on the watery strand
Last Line: Athens shall conquer with thy tomb in sight.
Alternate Author Name(s): Plato The Comic
Subject(s): Piraeus, Port Of Athens, Greece; Themistocles (524-460 B.c.)


BY the sea's margin, on the watery strand,
Thy monument, Themistocles, shall stand:
By this directed, to thy native shore
The merchant shall convey his freighted store;
And when our fleets are summoned to the fight,
Athens shall conquer with thy tomb in sight.
