Hydna was a woman who cut the mooring lines from the Persian ships at the Battle of Salamis in 480 B.C. The Battle of Salamis is a naval battle that went along with the battle of Thermopylae (the 300). That night, a storm came by and because the ships were no longer anchored, the Persians lost a great deal of their ships. This helped the Greeks claim a victory and save their homes from a Persian invasion.
