Overview

Xenophon (431-355 BC), son of Gryllus, of the deme Erchia of Athens, was a soldier, mercenary and an admirer of Socrates. He is known for his writings on the history of his own times, the sayings of Socrates, and the life of Greece. He participated in the expedition led by Cyrus the Younger against his older brother, the emperor Artaxerxes II of Persia, in 401 BC. His record of the entire expedition against the Persians and the journey home was titled Anabasis (The Expedition or The March Up Country). He was later exiled from Athens, most likely because he fought under the Spartan king Agesilaus against Athens at Coronea. The Spartans gave him property at Scillus, near Olympia in Elis, where he composed the Anabasis. His writings are often read by beginning students of the Greek language. His Hellenica is a major primary source for events in Greece from 411 to 362 BC, and his Socratic writings, preserved complete, are the only surviving representatives of the genre of Sokratikoi logoi other than the dialogues of Plato.

Meet the Author

Geboren am um 430 v.Chr. Attika; gestorben am nach 355 v.Chr..

Nach 410 v.Chr. schloß sich Xenophon an Sokrates an. 401 v. Chr. nahm er als Schlachtenbummler am Zug des jüngeren Kyros gegen den Perserkönig ArtaxerxesII. teil. Nach dem Tode des Kyros bei Kunaxa am Euphrat wurden die griechischen Offiziere von dem persischen Satrapen Tissaphernes ermordet; die führerlos gewordenen 10.000 griechischen Söldner leitete Xenophon durch Armenien ans Schwarze Meer und von dort an den Hellespont. 396 begleitete er den Spartanerkönig Agesilaos erst nach Kleinasien und dann gegen die mit Athen verbündeten Thebaner. Nach der Schlacht bei Koroneia (394) aus Athen verbannt, ließ sich Xenophon in Skillus bei Olympia nieder, das er nach 371 v.Chr. wieder verlassen mußte. Den Rest seines Lebens hat er wohl in Korinth verbracht, obwohl die Verbannung vermutlich schon 368/67 v.Chr. aufgehoben wurde.
