Here are some historical references per the chosen battles.
Battle of Tauris - 47 BC ( Caesareans vs Pompeians ) Caesareans Victory
Fought between the Pompeian fleet, under Marcus Octavius, and the Caesareans, under Publius Vatinius.
The Caesarean fleet consisted of merchant vessels, temporarily equipped with beaks, but Vatinius, though his ships were inferior both in number and quality, boldly attacked the Pompeians, and after severe fighting, completely defeated them, compelling Octavius to abandon the Adriatic.
Battle of Naulochus - 36 BC ( Caesareans vs Pompeians ) Caesareans Victory
Fought September 3, B.C. 36, between the Pompeian fleet of 300 ships, under Sextus Pornpeius, and the fleet of the Triumvirs, of equal strength, under Agrippa.
The action was severely contested, but in the end Agrippa was victorious, and Pompeius fled with 17 vessels only.
Battle of Actium - 31 BC ( Caesareans vs Antonians ) Caesareans Victory
Fought between the fleet of Antony, 460 galleys, and that of Octavius, about 250 sail, but much lighter and less well manned than those of Antony.
The battle was fiercely contested, with varying fortune; but at a critical moment Cleopatra ordered the Egyptian admiral to make sail, and with 60 galleys withdrew from the fight.
She was followed by Antony, and his fleet, discouraged by his flight, surrendered after ten hours' fighting.
The Octavians captured 300 galleys, and 5,000 Antonians fell in the action. A few days later Antony's land army of 120,000 men laid down their arms.
