The sound of oars could be heard a mile away. The soldiers and citizens rushed to the bulwarks, hoping to see which of the two fleets it might be. Cries and groans came from the crowd, for the flags of the ships were red, the color of the rebellion. But, had the Loyal fleet been defeated? And if so, would the enemy offer the city terms? The attackers disembarked quickly and advanced boldly through the storm of missiles. The defenders poured Greek fire on the enemy, but they pressed on in spite of the efforts of the defenders. And the city was doomed.

Wow that's great you really captured the Greek feel to the city. The only thing I would suggest is instead of bricks for the sand use studs, just my opinion it doesn't look bad just a suggestion.
That would certainly look good! Sadly, I built this quite a while ago and I didn't have a lot of studs then. :)
