A novel by

 
Excerpt from Belshazzar a Tale of the Fall of Babylon

On a certain day in the month Airu, by men of after days styled April, a bireme was speeding down the river Euphrates. Her swarthy Phoenician crew were bending to the double tier of oars that rose flashing from the tawny current; while the flute-player, perched upon the upcurved prow, was piping ever quicker, hastening the stroke, and at times stopping the music to cry lustily, "Faster, and faster yet! Thirty furlongs to Babylon now, and cool Helbon wine in the king's cellars!" Whereupon all would answer with a loud, "Ha!"; and make the bireme leap on like a very sea-horse.
