The whole works of Xenophon by Xenophon( Book )

15 editions published between 1832 and 1858 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the Socratic dialogues that come down to us were written by Socrates' student Plato. This volume collects the works of another of Socrates' students, Xenophon. Among histories of Athens and the "Anabasis," a thrilling tale of ancient warfare in which Socrates makes an appearance, this book contains Xenophon's own accounts of Socrates' teachings, trial and death. Unlike the dialogues of Plato, Xenophon's Socrates is more likely to give practical advice than to ask probing philosophical questions. Xenophon spends a great deal of this book defending Socrates from his critics, and seeks to vindicate his teacher
The march up country : a translation of Xenophon's Anabasis by Xenophon( )

28 editions published between 1776 and 1855 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BCE) 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, it fell to Xenophon to lead 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, Athens restored Xenophon to honour but he preferred to retire to Corinth. Xenophon's Anabasis is a true story of remarkable adventures
The Roman antiquities of Dionysius of Halicarnassus by Dionysius( Book )

5 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dionysius of Halicarnassus was born before 53 BCE and went to Italy before 29 BCE. He taught rhetoric in Rome while studying the Latin language, collecting material for a history of Rome, and writing. His Roman Antiquities began to appear in 7 BCE. Dionysius states that his objects in writing history were to please lovers of noble deeds and to repay the benefits he had enjoyed in Rome. But he wrote also to reconcile Greeks to Roman rule. Of the 20 books of Roman Antiquities (from the earliest times to 264 BCE) we have the first 9 complete; most of 10 and 11; and later extracts and an epitome of the whole. Dionysius studied the best available literary sources (mainly annalistic and other historians) and possibly some public documents. His work and that of Livy are our only continuous and detailed independent narratives of early Roman history. Dionysius was author also of essays on literature covering rhetoric, Greek oratory, Thucydides, and how to imitate the best models in literature. The Loeb Classical Library publishes a two-volume edition of the critical essays; the edition of Roman Antiquities is in seven volumes. "--Loeb

The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the march of the Ten Thousand. The exploits of this famous army of Greek mercenaries in modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq were described by one of their leaders, the Athenian historian and philosopher Xenophon. Their long march, across mountains and plateaux to the sight of 'The sea! The sea!', back to the fringes of the Greek world, is the most exciting adventure story to survive from the ancient world. - ;'Men, the enemy troops you can see are all that stands between us and the place we have for so long been determined to reach. We must find a way
