* SlaveGalley: Subverted. Nobody put slaves on an oar if they could help it, that was a development of the Renaissance; they weren't reliable or skilled enough (proper oarsmanship and fitness was more difficult than one might think) and local custom made them less easy then freemen to dismiss after hostilities. Moreover there were usually enough poor around who were desperate for work. If a navy was pressed so hard that it stooped to using slaves it would purchase and manumit them.

* HegemonicEmpire: Athens could be considered the UrExample and TropeNamer. It lead the formation of the [[TheFederation Delian League]] of cities to fight the Persians, but continued leading the league after the war (as [[TropeNamer "hegemon"]]), and militarily/navaly and economically dominated the other cities and dictated policy to them to the point that it became referred to as the [[TheEmpire "Athenian Empire"]]
