What striking figure is used to describe the destruction wrought under the second trumpet?


"And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and

NOTE - This describes the invasions and conquests of the Vandals under the terrible Gensericfirst of Africa and later of Italy-from AD. 428 to 476. His conquests were largely by sea. In a single night,
near Carthage, he destroyed, by fire and sword, more than half of the Roman fleet, consisting of 1,113
ships and over 100,000 men. See Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," chapter 36.
