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.
