De officiis by Marcus Tullius Cicero ( Book )
79 editions published between 1913 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
CICEREO (Marcus Tullius, 3rd Jan. 106-7th Dec. 43 B.C.), Roman lawyer, orator and politician (and even philosopher), of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 Speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In A.D. 1345 Petrarch discovered copies of a collection of more than 900 Letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man and all the more striking because they were not written for publication. Six Rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek

XENOPHON (c.430-c. 354 B.C.) of Athens, son of Gryllos, and friend of Socrates was a wealthy gentleman of his day. He joined in an expedition including ten thousand other Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus deep into Asia Minor against the Persian king who defeated and killed Cyrus. It fell to Xenophon to lead the Greeks northward through danger and stress until they reached Scutari early in 400 B.C. Later he wrote the famous extant vivid account of this March Up-Country (Anabasis) in seven books, a true story of remarkable adventures and discipline; 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 exiled Xenophon for being pro-Sparta. 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 in Corinth. His Memoirs of Socrates adds to Platos picture of Socrates from a different viewpoint. In the Apology of Socrates Xenophon supplements Platos similar work; and in Banquet presents an attractive counterpart to Platos. The charming Oeconomicus makes Socrates give advice on household management and married life of ordinary people. Hiero is a dialogue on government, Agesilaus praises that king; we also have Constitution of Lacedaemon (Sparta); Ways and Means on the finances of Athens; Manual for a Cavalry Commander; a good manual of Horsmanship; a lively Hunting with Hounds, mostly hare-hunting; a philosophical-historical romance Education of Cyrus (the Elder) on the ideal ruler and government; and the important Hellenica, (a history which purposely carries on Thucydides), 411-362 B.C. The Constitution of the Athenians, though obviously not by Xenophon, is an interesting important document on politics at Athens

Xenophon in seven volumes by Xenophon ( Book )
4 editions published in 1968 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Xenophon's Anabasis is a true story of remarkable adventures. Hellenica, a history of Greek affairs from 411 to 362, begins as a continuation of Thucydides' account. There are four works on Socrates (collected in volume IV of the Loeb Xenophon edition). In Memorabilia Xenophon adds to Plato's picture of Socrates from a different viewpoint. The Apology is an interesting complement to Plato's account of Socrates' defense at his trial. Xenophon's Symposium portrays a dinner party at which Socrates speaks of love; and Oeconomicus has him giving advice on household management and married life. Cyropaedia, a historical romance on the education of Cyrus (the elder), reflects Xenophon's ideas about rulers and government. -- jacket

The Constitution of the Athenians, though clearly not by Xenophon, is an interesting document on politics at Athens -- Publisher
