" What is more surprising is to see the advance of a mile-long line of infantry described as beautiful and as noble."

Sappho seems to've been familiar with the claim:

A company of horsemen or of infantry
Or a fleet of ships, some say,
Is the black earth's finest sight,
But to me it is what you love.

(Davenport tr.)
