The Persian expedition by Xenophon ( Book )
2,354 editions published between 1533 and 2011 in 33 languages and held by 2,814 libraries worldwide
"The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the march of the Ten Thousand. The exploits of this famous army of Greek mercenaries in modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq were described by one of their leaders, the Athenian historian and philosopher Xenophon. They were recruited at the end of the fifth century BC by a young Persian prince, Cyrus, who rose in revolt against his brother, the king of Persia. After Cyrus' death, the army was left stranded in the desert of Mesopotamia, a thousand miles from home. Their long march, across mountains and plateaux to the sight of 'The sea! The sea!', and back to the fringes of the Greek world, is the most exciting adventure story to survive from the ancient world." "Xenophon's narrative offers a unique insight into the character of a Greek army struggling to survive in an alien world. It is also the most sustained eyewitness account of the landscape of the vast and wealthy Persian empire."--BOOK JACKET.

The memorabilia recollections of Socrates by Xenophon ( Book )
1,067 editions published between 1521 and 2011 in 25 languages and held by 2,194 libraries worldwide
An essential text for understanding Socrates, Xenophon's Memorabilia is the compelling tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, providing a rare firsthand account of Socrates' life and philosophy. The Memorabilia is invaluable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. The longest of Xenophon's four Socratic works, it is particularly revealing about the differences between Socrates and his philosophical predecessors.

On Horsemanship is a treatise on horsemanship. Written c. 350 BC it is one of the oldest such in existence. Xenophon details the best qualities to look for in a horse, and the non-abusive training of a horse in classical dressage and for military and general use. He quotes other, apparently more celebrated contemporaries of his, whose texts have since been lost, particularly a man named only "Simon."

Hiero the tyrant and other treatises by Xenophon ( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 923 libraries worldwide
An Athenian aristocrat who fought as a mercenary commander in Cyrus the Younger's campaign to seize the Persian throne in 401 BC, Xenophon wrote a gripping account of that expedition as well as many other works of history, politics and philosophy. The six works collected here offer his informed insights into the nature and purposes of leadership. The dialogue between the poet Simonides and his employer Hiero, tyrant of Syracuse, ranks as a classic study of absolute power. The pioneering biography of King Agesilaus II of Sparta depicts the author's hero and patron as a model of piety, justice, courage and wisdom, while other texts consider the essential qualities of the cavalry commander, analyse the skills of the horseman and the hunter, and advance a bold economic programme for democratic Athens.
