Xenophon (c. 430–c. 350 B.C.)

Xenophon (zen’o-fon). The famous author of the ‘Anabasis’; born at Athens, about 430 B.C.; died in Corinth, about 350 B.C. He is the author of the ‘Hellenics’; ‘Anabasis’; ‘Encomium of Agesilaus’; ‘Horsemanship’; ‘Hipparchicus’; ‘Cynegeticus’; ‘Lacedæmonian Polity’; ‘Cyropædeia’; ‘Athenian Finance’; ‘Memorabilia of Socrates’; ‘Symposium’; ‘Œconomicus’; ‘Hieron’; ‘Apology of Socrates.’ ‘The Polity of Athens’ is now regarded as an anonymous work incorporated into the text of Xenophon, but probably not his.
