Reply To: Xenophon's Legacy

Jason Jewell

Sorry about the slow reply!

I expect this a reference to the famous “March to the Sea” in which Xenophon participated and which he recorded in Book IV of his “Anabasis.” 10,000 Greek soldiers were stranded in Persian territory after a battle, and they had to fight their way out over hundreds of miles. Does the context of the passage lend itself to this interpretation?
