About this product
- DescriptionThe March of the Ten Thousand is one of the most famous military adventures in the ancient world. Its fearless army of Greek mercenaries marched through western Asia (modern Turkey and Iraq) in 401--399 B.C., their hopes and hardships recounted by Xephon, the Athenian, an admiring pupil of Socrates. Xephon's history of the Long March, or Anabasis, is a classic of Greek literature. In this book, twelve leading scholars explore the Anabasis, a deceptively simple and profoundly rich source of social and cultural history and the mentality of the ancient Greek participants. The contributors explore a wide range of topics, from Xephon's values, motives, and manner as a writer to the outlook of his companions as mercenary soldiers, from his descriptions of religion in soldiers' lives to their relations with women, boys, and the many foreign peoples encountered during the march.
