The Battle of Cape Ecnomus was fought in 256 BCE off the coast of Sicily between the fleets of the Roman Republic and Carthage, ending in a decisive Roman victory. It has been called “the largest naval battle in history” due to the sheer number of naval vessels and troops involved — close to 700 ships and almost 300,000 rowers and marines combined. This striking depiction of the famous battle was created in 1763 by Gabriel de Saint-Aubin, who painted the epic scene in great detail, using a particular sepia palette of watercolor and ink. Its full title reads: The Roman Fleet Victorious over the Carthaginians at the Battle of Cape Ecnomus.
