    Xenias and Pasion are seen as cowards for deserting Cyrus. Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation methods and addresses. After this Cyrus marched four stages, twenty parasangs, to the Chalus river, which is a plethrum in width and full of large, tame fish; these fish the Syrians regarded as gods, and they would not allow anyone to harm them, or the doves, either. Arguably as a result, he spent decades in exile, though he may have been able to make his peace with Athens toward the end of his life, and could perhaps have been allowed to return at some point before he died. From there he marched one stage, five parasangs, to the Pyramus river, the width of which was a stadium.

The Hellenes confront an enemy in a mountain pass and Xenophon suggests taking control of the mountain before traveling up the pass. Whether his service to Sparta caused or reflected his formal exile from Athens remains a matter of some dispute, but exiled he certainly was.

Xenophons Socrates book

And the soldiers--not only his own men, but the rest also--when they heard that he said he would not go on to the King's capital, commended him; and more than two thousand of the troops under Xenias and Pasion took their arms and their baggage train and encamped with Clearchus.

The Socratic Way of Life: Xenophon's

The majority of classical Athenian adult male citizens weren't rich, but neither were they craftsmen bausanikoi or wage-earners. The Foundation makes no representations concerning the copyright status of any work in any country outside the United States.

Oeconomicus

At this time Orontas, a Persian, who was related to the King by birth and was reckoned among the best of the Persians in matters of war, devised a plot against Cyrus--in fact, he had made war upon him before this, but had become his friend again.

But Polycrates' work is lost, and our sources for reconstructing it are late and unreliable. But in a question of health, men take the advice of physicians rather than that of their parents; and moreover, in the meetings of the legislative assembly all the people of Athenswithout question, follow the advice of those whose words are wisest rather than that of their own relatives.

Pangle characterizes this as "a peak activity," which shows that Socrates could not only lead his companions toward virtue but also enable them to act virtuously The soldiers finally catch a glimpse of the sea.

I wonder if the same principle applies to Leo Strauss himself: the pluralist Socrates of Xenophon, Leo Strauss kept reminding everyone to notice "what should have been there but was not there"; the silence of the great minds are a thousand times more important than their sayings. This makes it difficult for readers not only to evaluate Pangle's own views, but to be certain that we are asking questions Xenophon's Socrates thought to ask.

Thus this sentence does not say that Socrates merely supplied what Euthydemus thought Euthydemus needed, but that Socrates explained what everyone needs.

A few of the interlocutors appear several times. Tissaphernes comes with his troops and the Hellenes suspect they will be betrayed as they progress homeward. This letter he gave to a man whom he supposed to be faithful to him; but this man took it and gave it to Cyrus.

THE APOLOGY

In democratic Athens, wealthy men were required to fund public expenditures like warships, theatrical performances, etc. Cyrus thereupon took the exiles under his protection, collected an army, and laid siege to Miletus both by land and by sea, and endeavoured to restore the exiles to their city; and this, again, made him another pretext for gathering an army.

Thus the army in Thessaly, again, was being secretly maintained for him. Xenophon persuades the ambassadors of Sinope into having good relations with the Hellenes.Written by an outstanding international team of scholars, this Companion explores the profound influence of Socrates on the history of Western philosophy.
