Abstract

From Homer onwards, ancient poets often referred to the dangers of the sea. A powerful Iliadic simile describes a ship caught in a storm. In the Works and Days, Hesiod advises his brother Perses against sea trade even in springtime. Seafaring and sea trade kept arousing the fear and disapproval of later poets such as Aratus, Callimachus, Lucretius, Horace, Juvenal and Oppian.
