Reference to Lord Byron's 1rst trip to Greece between 1809-1811

 I am reading an extract from "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" by Lord Byron

   Ambracia’s gulf behold, where once was lost
   A world for woman, lovely, harmless thing!
   In yonder rippling bay, their naval host
   Did many a Roman chief and Asian king
   To doubtful conflict, certain slaughter, bring
   Look where the second Cæsar’s trophies rose,
   Now, like the hands that reared them, withering;
   Imperial anarchs, doubling human woes!
   God! was thy globe ordained for such to win and lose?

Panos Charalambous, Ambrakia Mia, 1994
