Book Description:
Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BC) was a wealthy Athenian and friend of Socrates. He left Athens in 401 and joined an expedition including ten thousand Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus against the Persian king. After the defeat of Cyrus, Xenophon led the Greeks from the gates of Babylon back to the coast through inhospitable lands. Later he wrote the famous vivid account of this March Up Country (Anabasis) but meanwhile he entered service under the Spartans against the Persian king, married happily, and joined the staff of the Spartan king, Agesilaus. But Athens was at war with Sparta in 394, and so exiled Xenophon. The Spartans gave him an estate near Elis where he lived for years, writing and hunting and educating his sons. Reconciled to Sparta, Xenophon was restored to honor in Athens, but he preferred to retire to Corinth.
