PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION. 

THE object of such adapted Selections as these has some- 
times been misunderstood. It has been supposed that the aim 
is to save boys' thought ; the real aim is the reverse. It is to 
get boys to think and to use their minds on the language at 
a stage when otherwise they would either have had their 
attention confined to Grammar or Delectus- work, or have 
had to struggle at translating authors whose style is really 
beyond them. Such a struggle does not, I believe, educate the 
boy or make him think. He is simply baffled and bewildered 
by having too many difficulties thrust on him at once, and 
either buys a word for word translation, or simply looks out 
the words without trying to connect them and discover a 
meaning. The essence of good teaching seems to me to lie 
in presenting to boys an infinite succession of problems 
carefully graduated according to the exact stage of their 
progress. Power is what we-'want ; and the feeling of getting 
on, the feeling of doing something with one's knowledge, the 
pleasure of following a connected story all this awakens 
interest, makes brain and heart work with eye and ear, in- 
telligence with memory, and gives in fact that sense of power 
which is one of the chief sources of power itself. 

These ' Easy Selections ' are adapted for boys who are only 
just beginning Greek. They are somewhat graduated, so 
that the beginning is made still easier than the rest ; in the 
first hundred lines there are no augmented tenses, in the first 
three hundred none which are not specially explained in the 
notes. All through, the words are, as far as possible, put in 
the order in which they should be taken ; the sentences are 
very short, and there is a Vocabulary containing not only all 
the words, but all the more difficult forms of words used. 

The whole is intended as a Preliminary Part to ' Selections 



iv PREFACE. 

Adapted from Xenophon 1 ,' which has now reached a third 
edition. Since those ' Selections ' were published I have been 
so much engaged with other work that I should never have 
been able to complete this Preliminary Part without the 
welcome assistance of Mr. Jerram, who I found had already 
prepared an edition of the Anabasis on his own account. 
At my suggestion he kindly gave up this for an ' Adapted ' 
edition, to act as a First Greek Construing-book. Besides 
his knowledge of the Anabasis, he brought to the work the 
freshest acquaintance with the actual wants of boys beginning 
Greek, from his experience in directing the classical teaching 
of a large preparatory school. Though I am responsible for 
the plan of the book, the main burden of the work has fallen 
on his shoulders, and if these ' Easy Selections ' should in any 
way meet the wants of teachers, I hope the credit will be 
given where it is due. We owe thanks to Mr. Beuttler for 
preparing the first draught of the Vocabulary.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION. 

THE principal change in the Second Edition is that the 
First Chapter has been made still easier than before. This 
improvement has been effected, not by altering the text 
(which might have caused inconvenience in schools where 
the former Edition was already in use), but by additions 
to the notes. The verb-forms are the great stumbling- 
block to beginners, and throughout the first 300 lines every 
such form likely to cause any difficulty has been 'parsed.' 
The aim of these Easy Selections is to enable a boy to 

1 If variety is desired, the 'Stories of Rhampsinitus and Marathon' 
(Rivington, 2nd ed. 1877) may be used as a bridge between the two. 



PREFACE. V 

begin construing at once, without the intervention of any 
Greek Reader or Delectus. At the request of the boys 
themselves the book was introduced into a form, where many 
had begun their Greek Grammar but two or three weeks 
previously ; and the experiment was found thoroughly suc- 
cessful. Should it^be thought that a reading-book is out 
of place at so early a stage, it must be remembered that 
by the time boys begin Greek, the chief difficulties of trans- 
lation from a foreign language have been already mastered 
in Latin, if not in French as well. With Grammar and 
Vocabulary a boy can begin construing almost as soon as 
he knows the alphabet. The need of constant reference to 
the Accidence to help him in this task makes an intelligent 
boy look upon his Grammar as a friend rather than as a 
foe ; whereas, if he learns paradigms alone for several weeks 
or months, he soon loses the interest of novelty in disgust 
at the dryness of the method. The standard of accuracy 
need not be lowered, but the required amount of accuracy 
may be achieved as completely with a more ready coopera- 
tion on the part of the learner. After all, we educate non 
scholae sect vitae; and if, as we profess, our chief aim is to 
develope intelligence, we cannot afford to dispense with the 
exercise of it at any stage. 

The First Edition was not stereotyped, on purpose to leave 
room for alterations. Several minor additions are now intro- 
duced, and the whole has been most carefully revised and 
corrected. Should any errata still have escaped detection, 
the Editors will be greatly obliged to any one who will send 
a line to either of them.

NOTES, 

CHAPTER I. 
THE MARCH TOWARDS BABYLON. 

[N.B. In the first loo lines no augmented tenses are used. There is a note 
on every augmented tense throughout the first chapter. After Chapter 7 there 
are notes on such augmented tenses only as present any peculiar difficulty.] 

Line i. yiY VOVTal > the present instead of the past t-ytvovro. Tenses 
are of two kinds, past or dead, and present or living. History, telling 
of the past, should only use past or dead tenses, but it often uses present 
or living tenses, to make the story more lively; as if the historian 
were looking on at the time the thing happened. Hence the present 
tense, when thus used, is called the historical present. 

iraiSes S\JQ, instead of naiSt 5vo, because no stress is laid on the fact 
that there were only two of them. But further on in 1. 4, where there is 
such a stress, we find afifyorfpca rui natSt. Cp. IV. 279 note. 

1. 2. Though Artaxerxes was the elder son, he was born before his 
father became king. Cyrus was born after Darius had succeeded to the 
throne, and this, according to Persian customs, gave him at least some 
claim. Darius I had chosen Xerxes to succeed him on the same ground. 
Cyrus was not thus chosen by his father ; but he was the favourite of 
Parysatis (1. 18), and the queen-mother was powerful in Persia. 

1. 3. dcrOsvwv, pres. past nom. masc. sing, of dcrfocecu, contracted 
from aaOtvtoav. 

Oavetv, 2 aor. infin. of Ovrjcr/coi (stem 0av-). 

1. 4. irap-tivat, pres. infin. of irap-fipt, ' I am present." 

1. 6. opx^s, 'province.' A satrap was a viceroy under the king of 
Persia. The satrapy of Cyrus consisted of Lydia, Phrygia, and Cappa- 
docia; the Ionian towns, or Greek colonies, had been under Tissaphernes, 
but about this time all of them, except Miletus, revolted to Cyrus. 

oOv, ' Well then,' continuing the story. [Ovv is probably = bv, the neut. 
part, of flfil, ' this being so,' like our ' in fact. 1 ] 



108 NOTES. 

1. 7. dva-pami, ' goes up,' i. e. inland or up from the coast. [Hence 
the expedition of Cyrus is called 'Ava-paats or the March inland. The 
retreat of the 10,000 Greeks should properly be called K.a.Ta.-@a<ns, or 
the March doiun to the sea] . 

1. 9. dva-pds, 2 aor. part. nom. masc. sing, of dra-/3aiVw (stem Pa-). 

paaiXeiois, 'palace,' sc. Sw/juiffi. Distinguish rd. Paai\<t&., neut. pi. 
of @a<jt\fios, from 7) /3a<j(Aeia, 'queen,' and this again from i) fiaaiKtia, 
'kingdom.' 

1. 10. TXvra, 3 sing. pres. ind. of rt\( vrnoi, contracted for r\(vra(i. 

1. 12. 8ia-pdXXi, 'accuses.' Ba\\(iv is ' to throw,' Sid, 'indifferent 
directions;' hence Sia-0a\\fiv, 'to pull to pieces' a person's character, 
i.e. 'slander* or 'accuse.' Thus in the New Test. 6 Aid/3oA.os is a 
title of Satan, 'the Accuser,' who tempts us to sin, and then accuses us 
before God. 

1. 15. diro-KTtivai, 1 aor. infin. act. of a-no-K-rtiv ca. 

f| jff|TTjp, 'his mother,' lit. 'the mother' (of him whom we are talking 
about). The Greek article is used for the possessive pronoun (' my,' 
' thy,' ' his,' etc.) when the sense makes the reference clear. 

-<HTT)cra}i.VT), I aor. part. mid. nom. fem. sing, of (-aiT(cu. 

1. 20. d4>-iKvoi)vT(u, 3 pi. pres. ind of d^-iwto/xat contracted from 

Onp-lKvioVTO.1. 

1. 21. KCU ovroi. Kai means (i) 'and,' joining two words or clauses 
together, (2) 'also' or 'even,' laying a stress on some particular word. 
Notliing makes greater nonsense of a Greek sentence than to confound 
these tiw) meanings of KOI. Think which makes sense here. 

1. 22. pacnXet, 'the king.' Ba<7tA.vs without the article commonly 
means ' the great king' or ' the king of Persia,' being used like a proper 
name. Sometimes fityas is added, as in 1. 182 of this chapter. 

rots Pappdpois TOIS Trap' lavroi. i. e. the Asiatics who were in his 
own service, as distinguished from the Persian envoys above mentioned, 
who ' came from the king' (1. 20). 

1. 23. i<rvv, 3 pi. pres subj. of tltf, I am.' The v is added to wert 
because the next word begins with a vowel. 

1. 24. TOV iroX(Atv, Lat. bellandi. The article TO is used to make a 
declinable noun substantive of the so-called infinitive, so that it can be 
declined like the Latin gerund. The usage makes it clear that the 
infinitive really is, what it ought to be called, viz. a verb-noun. 

1. 25. XApfl, 3 sing. 2 aor. subj. of Xa^avu (stem Xap>). 

1. 26. XppovT|<7<$>. The name x ( PP~ VT l ffos ( or X / )ff "- | "? ' os ) ' s fr m 
\ipoot, ' land,' and rfco*, ' island,' and means ' a peninsula.' It was used 
as a sort of proper name for the strip of land which forms part of Thrace, 
and runs out along the north side of the Hellespont. 

1. 27. Yv6nvos, 2 aor. part, of 77'o>u (stem 



7. THE MARCH TOWARDS BABYLON. 109 



1. 29. Xapuv, 2 aor. part, of \ap&avca (stem 

crvX-Xe'as, i aor. part. nom. masc. sing, of ffv\-\fy(a. 

1. 30. Tais iroXeo-i TU>V 'E\X-qva)v, the Greek colonies in Thrace on the 
Propontis, such as Byzantium and Perinthus. 

1. 35. The Pisidians were a race of mountaineers, inhabiting the high- 
lands above Pamphylia, and were very troublesome to the satrapy of 
Cyrus. 

1. 37. dva-paiveiv. Cp. 1. 7 n - 

1. 39. Xaj36vras, 2 aor. part. ace. masc. pi. of Ka^nvai (stem 
Xap-). 

1. 40. imp-tvai els SapSeis. As -nap tifit 'I am come,' it can be 
used with a preposition signifying motion lo a place. Sardis was the 
capital of Lydia, and Lydia had been made a Persian satrapy by Cyrus 
the Great, when he conquered its king Croesus, B.C. 546. 

1. 41. oKOiicras, I aor. part. nom. masc. sing, of O.KOV<D. 

4>opoiJ|ivcs, pres. part. mid. of tyopiaj, contracted from c/xj/Jfo/ucos. 

1. 44. KOU. aurds. Think whether KOI here means ' and ' or ' also.' 
Cp. 1. 21 n. 

1. 49. ciri-icci|ivT], part. nom. fern. sing, of M'Kttfiat. 

8ia-pds, 2 aor. part. nom. masc. sing, of Sta-ftaivca (stem Pa-). 

1. 50. KoXooxrds. Colossae was formerly one of the most populous 
towns of Phrygia. Its inhabitants were the Colossians, to whom St. 
Paul addressed his epistle. . 

1. 54. pao-iXeia. Cp. 1. 9 n. Besides this palace of Cyrus at 
Cclaenae there was another belonging to the King of Persia, said to have 
been built by Xerxes, during his retreat from Greece after the battle of 
Sal amis. 

1. 56. Y v ( AV( i orai i aor. infin. act. of yvfivafa. 

1. 61. y'Y VOVT<u > I't. ' there become,' i. e. ' there turn out' or ' are found 
to be.' 

1.64. KauoTpov ireStov, 'the Plain of Cayster' or ' Caystrum.' It

simply a long adjective. As adjectives agree in case with their sub- 
stantives, the Greeks make the relative do the same. The relative then 
is said to be ' attracted ' into the case of its antecedent, i. e. is made to 
agree with its antecedent in case, as well as in gender, number, and 
person. To avoid confusion, this is only done when the relative would 
otherwise have been in the accusative. Cp. avrl wavTwv S>v ex w m the

on (3aoru\vis irpos-'pxT<u, 'that the king was coming.' But the 
Greeks use on before a direct speech, though we use our corresponding 
word ' that * only before an indirect. "On (o n) is really a relative, so 
that \ty<av on, etc. means ' saying that which follows,' viz. ' the king is 
coming.'

right or unshielded side without protection. Here this over-caution on 
the part of Clearchus lost the battle.

1. 53. Kara. Kpdros, ' at full speed,' lit. ' according to one's (full)

originally opposite meanings, tip and down, they come to the same 
thing, when the idea is simply that of motion along a given line and 
towards a given point ; if this point is not local, they both come to mean 
'in the way of or 'through.'] 

1. 54. 0iv Sp6|xco, ' to run fast,' lit. 'at a run.' The addition of a word

1. 59. ou8 ovSels oti8v. Two or more negatives in Greek do not 
make an affirmative, as in English, but a stronger negative. Thus ovot 
ovSfls is 'no/ even a single one.' Cp. I. 141, 279 n. In older English

after verbs of knowing, feeling, perceiving, and the like, to express the 
fact known or felt. In Latin it would be nesciebant eum mortuum esse 
(accus. and infin.). [OfSct with the iiifin. means ' I know how to,' as 
olSa ("ijf , ' I know how to live.'] 

1. 1 1 8. wp(jiT)o-ovTO, ' had started.' The Greek aorist in a minor

aorist ' started," where we should alter it to ' had started,' Cp. I.

neut. of a/wcTTos, ' best." The sense decides. 

1. 22. 6mcr6o-<|>uAa,Kfaiv, pres. part, of bma8o-<pv\aKt<a. Compounds 
not made with prepositions are formed from nouns already compounded, 
and generally end in -e'w. Thus 6mado-<f>v\a.K((a comes from the noun 
omaOo-(f)v\a^, vav-paxtoa from va.v-fi.axos, etc. Prepositions usually form 
compounds with the simple verbs, as KaTa-fpvhdaaw, npos-ndxofMii. 

1. 26. circoTaTci. This is formed from the noun (niffrarrjs, which is 
already compounded ; so being formed from a noun it ends in -ecu (see 
the last note). 'E<p-lffTTj/ju is the compound of tirl and foTjj/xj. 

1. 28. fn-cue, imperf. 'he would strike him,' i.e. as often as there was 
occasion to do so. 

1. 32. Ktti, 'also' (as well as the younger men). Beware of translating 
HOI by ' and,' when it does not couple words or sentences. If so translated 
here it would couple rrpos-e\a.fil3avov with tojpcav, and make it governed 
by firfl, thus leaving the sentence without any principal verb, which 
would make nonsense. Cp. I. 21 n. 

1. 36. Y K '4 >a ^ ov the part [within the Kpa\r] or ' head '], i. e. the 
' cabbage ' (as it is called) of the palm-tree ; a sort of bud at the top of

foot-stalks of the actual leaves. This part was edible as well as the 
fruit or date.

generally to 'punish ' an enemy, with ace. of person, as here.

oath. 

1. 67. tTm8dv = 7r87> &v, 'as soon as.' Compounds of av (as orav, 
tirtibav, fdv, etc.) take the subjunctive ; with the aorist they have the 
force of ' shall have.' 

1. 72. |iT| ou mcrros eiT), ' lest he should be faithless.' The ov belongs 
to iriaros, OU-TTKTTOS being equivalent to arrunos. 

1. 75. 86op.ev, ' we shall be thought,' lit. ' we shall seem.' The per- 
sonal verb Soxtta means (i) ' I think,' (2) ' I seem,' i. e. ' I ant thought.' 

rrapd. Tas arrovSds, ' contrary to the truce." Tlapd, ' by the side of,' 
often with ace., means ' passing by,' ' going beside the mark,' ' neglect- 
ing ' or ' transgressing,' hence ' contrary to." 

tiTiTa, ' then ' or ' after this.' Distinguish from iirel, ' when.' 

1. 77. XcXfiij'tTai, 'will have been left," i.e. 'we shall have no friend 
left.' The paulo-post future, or future-perfect, implies that the action or 
event will be completed at a future time. Here the idea is, when that 
time comes, we shall find ourselves without friends. 

1. 85. iroifjaai rd mard amora, lit. ' to make his faithful things 
faithless,' i. e. ' falsify his pledges.' 

1.91. t^^AaTTovro dXXr]Xovs, 'kept on their guard against each 
other.' The act. # vXar-rtiv is ' to guard ' or ' protect ' anyone (l^at.

(Lat. cavere aliqnein). 

1. 92. TO MrjSias TIX<>S, ' the wall of Media,' so called because it was 
built to keep the Medes out of Babylonia (so the ' Picts" Wall ' was to 
prevent incursions of the Picts) : see opposite page. The wall of Media 
was situated about 100 miles N.W. of Babylon, and must originally have 
extended from the Tigris to the Euphrates ; but at this time there was 
a considerable gap in the wall at the western or Euphrates end. 
Tissaphemes must therefore have first led the Greeks some sixty miles 
in a homeward (or north-westerly) direction, through this gap to the 
north side of the wall, then have brought them back through the wall

twenty-four miles eastward to Sittace on the Tigris l . 

1. 98. ovojxo, ' by name,' the accus. of respect. Caenae would be on 
the right or west bank of the Tigris, since it was the opposite side to 
the Greeks, who were marching northwards, with the river on their

1. 112. Tracra 686s, 'every road,' iracra -q 6865, (next line), 'all the 
road," i. e. ' our whole line of march.' 

1 This identifies Mr/Sias rtixos with the Wall of Nimroiid, said to have 
been originally built by Nimrod, against the Ninevite invaders from the 
north. Another view is that the ' Wall of Media ' was a long way south of 
this, between Cunaxa and Babylon, and that Sittace was much lower down 
the Tigris than it is placed in the above map. In this case, the Greeks 
would have passed only once through the wall, from the north, so as to get 
'inside,' i.e. on the south side, of it.

persons plural. 

1. 135. ols, 'with which." Observe that the Greek dative supplies the 
Latin ablative of instrument, while the genitive supplies the Latin 
ablative meaning ' from.'

a predicate in apposition to the noun. If it were TOV fj^vv rpoirov, the 
ijSi/j' would be merely an epithet of rpuirov. Cp. IV. 269 n. 

1. 207. 8i-Kivro, etc., 'were to him in the position of,' etc. AiaKttaOai

Xenophon had been a disciple of Socrates from his youth ; Socrates 
himself wrote nothing, so we are indebted to his two pupils Xenophon 
and Plato for what we know of him. Xenophon's Memorabilia 
(Reminiscences), or notes of Socrates' sayings, show the teacher's 
practical good sense. Plato had a real grasp of philosophy and had 
imagination as well, and in his dialogues or ' imaginary conversations' 
he depicts Socrates as -a most subtle and humorous arguer on the 
deepest questions of philosophy.

the bad points were (i) that the dream came from Zeus as King, which 
seemed to imply mischief from the king of Persia, (2) that the flames

II. 2) who would not 'be afraid of tumbling off,' and the Greeks soon 
found they could not get on without cavalry, see 1. 150. What was 
really reassuring was the fact that Xenophon evidently did not despair, 
as he could make a joke of their fears.

The four forms of a conditional sentence are (i) ' if it is, it is,' (2) ' if 
(ever) it be, it will be,' (3) ' if it were to be, it would be,' (4) ' if it had 
been, it would have been' [but it is not]. This is the 4th form, and 
implies 'but the king does not see us preparing to settle:' just above 
we had the 3rd form 8011) &v . . , l POV\OIVTO, ' he would give, etc.,

1. 119. evOciSe belongs to Ko/iitra/iti/ois, ' having come here.' 
1. 121. irp6cr0v must be omitted in translation, as irpiv follows in 
the next clause. We say (for instance), ' I will not do it, before you 
come,' the Greeks often said, ' I will not first (irpoaO(v) do it, before 
(irpiv} you come.' 

1. 123. dir-oXe'crStti dv, 'that we should be mined;' the &v, 'in that

made a \6xos or company. Each half-company was again subdivided 
into two sections, these were called Enomotiae (iva/tunai, lit. ' a band of 
men sworn in,' from ey-o/mi/ut), and their leaders were called tvujioT- 
apxai, ' section-commanders," ' sublieutenants,' or ' ensigns.' The whole 
number amounted to about 10,000 (I. 318) ; these six companies were 
only a small division, which could be shifted so as to give elasticity to 
the whole. Probably three marched in front, one in the centre of the 
front line, and one where each flank joined the front ; and the other 
three in the same position^ in the rear.

Where the main verb has a 'not' the Greeks put a 'not* with the 
dependent verb as well; so here the /) merely emphasises the 'not' 
already contained in Ku\v<a, and therefore must not be translated in 
English. 

1. 246. OUK av ir-rpirov, ' would not have let the Greeks do 
this,' i.e. 'if they saw them trying it." The clause to be supplied 
would run tl iwpwv avroiis TWpw^eVot/j. For av with the imperf. cp.

1. 249. KapB-ovxovs. The root of this word is still preserved in the 
modern Kurd, Kurdistan. 

1. 250. TJPXV, ' was satrap over,' from apx?i, ' province.' Cp. I. 6 n.

distinction between avr&s & and o avros cp. 1. 190 n. 

1. 255. TTJS VVKTOS, ' during the night.' The gen. of time is really a 
partitive gen. denoting a period within which something takes place, as 
finipas, ' by day,' VVKTOS, ' by night." So in older English ' he did it> 
o' nights.' Observe also that VVKTOS means generally ' by night,' TTJS 
VVKTOS, ' during this particular night.' 

1. 257. uirero, ' was following." Cp. II. 158 n. 

1. 260. X OVTS - The part. tx 03v ma y often be translated ' with,' as

bringing up the rear (cp. 1. 256). 

1. 269. iKavo. TO, in.TT|Seia, ' the provisions (which they had) were not 
sufficient.' The position of the article between the adjective and noun 
makes lieava the predicate of the sentence. Cp. III. 206 n. 

1. 272. TOIS 6ma0o(j>v\ai. depends on (yi^vcro, ' for the rear-guard.' 

1. 273. Distinguish gTiaro, imperf. of ama-o/xai, 'I blame,' from 
rJTtiTO, imperf. mid. of aire-cu, ' I ask.' 

1. 278. o\> <}>acriv civai, ' say that there is not,' Lat. negant esse. 
Ou-QrjiM is to be taken as one word, ' I deny,' not ' I do not say.' 

1. 279. 8vio civSpas, not dvSpf, because no stress is laid on the fact of 
there being only two. Cp. I. i, V. 17 n. 

1. 282. l8iev, 3rd plur. opt. of olSa, ' whether they knew.' The opt.

auTos <(>T| T]-yir)crecr9ai, ' said that he would guide.' The avros is 
the nom. before the infin. When the subject of the infinitive is the 
same as that of the principal verb, the Greeks put it in the nominative, 
not in the accusative as in Latin. In Latin this would be ' dixit se 
ducturum csse,' but (<f>rj avruv Tj-ffjafaOai would mean that some other 
man would guide them. 

1. 289. T-po-KaTa \T)4/oivTO. The////, opt. is used in a reported speech,

volunteers, who are supposed to have gained the summit. 

1. 299. 4>avpav tKpacriv, the same as <l>av(pa.v odijv 1. 282, where see 
note. But Xenophon here calls it an e/r/Jaais, or ' egress,' because it was 
a way of getting out of their difficulty. 

1. 300. auroi, 'themselves, 1 i.e. the rest of the army, who were to

1. 309. <{>po|i.tvoi. .. 8i-<T<J>v8ovu>vTO, 'falling against the rocks were

a man struck by lightning, <r4>vSovS.To \upls a\\rj\caf /t<Xj, ' his limbs 
were shot far from one another," as if from a sling.]

1. 31 7. cLs, ' as if,' i. e. ' thinking that," etc.

1. 346. TW irpumo X6<j)Cj>, ' the first of the three crests ' which 
Xcnophon's men had taken, mentioned in 1. 335 as ' overhanging the 
road." Some men had been left to guard this, while Xenophon with 
the rest of the army went on to attack the next position (1. 340). It 
must not be confounded with the first position of all, which the 
volunteers took. 

\i<j)0tvTs, ' left,' from Xeurw ; distinguish from \rj(f>9fvres, ' taken,' 
from \anfiavco. 

1. 350. dir-ijTei, imperf. of air-airi<a, 'to ask back.' Distinguish from 
alnao^ai, 'I blame.' Cp. 1. 273 n. 

ui TOVTCO coo-re [AT) d8iKiv, ' on condition of their not injuring ; ' 
lit. ' on this (condition) so as not to injure.' 'Em meaning 'upon,' and 
the dative implying ' rest at ; ' M with dat. means ' resting on a certain

1. 358. KaT-f'ajjav, 1st aor. of KaT-d-yvv|ju. Distinguish the tenses oi 
ay-pv/tt, ' I break," from those of dy-ca, ' I lead.' Both verbs have the 
fut. a<u, but the ist aor. of ayvvm is e'aa, that of 0170; (not often used) is 
^fa. Also dyca makes its perf. ^x a > while the 2nd perf. of ayvvfu 
is e'aya, and means, ' I am broken.' 

1. 359. tnTao-irio-rfis, ' armour-bearer,' lit. ' shield-supporter.' The 
dams, or large shield, was a great encumbrance when not in actual 
use. 

1. 360. irpo-pa\X6|X6vos, ' putting forward ' as a defence. 
1. 362. TOIS i]8Tj crwTTaY|Avois, ' those already posted there.' These

he ascended the hill with a chosen band. They had halted under arms, 
and were waiting for Xenophon in the road below. 

1. 365. XUKKOI.S KovMvrots, ' plastered cisterns," made by digging holes

1. 2. is KwXvo-ovras, ' as if they meant to hinder them.' So us 
intKtioontvovs 1. 6 below. Cp. II. 70 n. 

1. 6. <rw-iXYH-<vovs, ' collected.' At'-yoi, ' I gather,' has perf. Aox<i, 
perf. pass. iAt-y/taj, but only in compounds; A.'-ya>, 'I speak,' has no 
perf. act. in use, but perf. pass. \(\tyijat. 

1. 9. avrdp-ciToi., ' of their own accord.' Avrtftaros is literally ' self- 
moving ' or ' self-acting,' from aiiros, ' self,' and the stem jjia, ' to move,' 
found in the old 2nd perf. ju'-jia-a. Hence it means ' acting of one's 
own will,' without any external force ; and we call a self-acting machine 
an automaton. 

irpi-ppVT]vai, 2nd aor. pass, infin. of ittpi-pptoi, fut. f>tv-aonai, perf. 
fppv-T]Ka, 2nd aor. pass, kppv-rjv (with active meaning). In verbs begin- 
ning with p, the p is doubled (i) after the augment, as tp-peov, (a) after 
a preposition ending in a vowel, as -ntpi-ppiia. 

avru is the dativus comtnodi, lit. ' slipped round for him,' i.e. 'slipped 
off him.' 

1. 10. Bia-Paivtiv, ' he went free,' lit. ' with the legs apart (5m).' 
[Usually Sia-Paiydv is ' to go through' or ' go across,' as in 11. 21, 23, 24, 
25, etc.] 

1. 1 7. Why 8uo vcavicrKw (dual) here, but rovs vtaviaKovs and ol 
vtaviaKoi (plural) in 11. 29, 35 below? Because on theirs/ mention 
of the young men one's attention is directed to the fact of there being 
two of them, whereas afterwards they are merely alluded to as ' the 
young men," without any stress being laid upon this fact. But even in 
the former case it was not thought necessary to put the verb in the dual; 
so we have irpos-irpfxov, not irpos-iTptxinjv. Cp. I. i n. 

1. 20. Sxrittp fiapo-iirovs, ' what seemed like bags,' lit. ' as it were 
bags ; ' Lat. quasi or lanquam. 

1. 22. ravTfl, sc. X"W> ' at tm?s point.' So i), 'in which place ' =

8i-^T)(i.cv, 2nd aor. in next line, ' we (actually) did cross.'

V. THE MARCH THROUGH ARMENIA. 137 

1. 34. v p.rcp TOVTWV, ' between them.' Mfffos means (i) the middle 
o/a thing, as p.lar) fjpipa or piaov jj/xt'pas (II. 17) ; (2) a space midway 
between, with the gen., as here. 

1. 38. dvd KpaTos. Cp. II. 5 n. 

1. 40. tire! SI-^PTJ, ' when he had crossed.' The aor. in a minor 
sentence must often be translated by the pluperfect. Cp. I. 254, II. 
118. 

, 1. 43. TOVIS iroXejxiovs, etc., the Armenian infantry, who had been 
drawn up on the higher ground behind the cavalry. Cp. 1. 4. 

1. 48, us t'm-0T)cr6|j,evoi, ' in order to attack.' Cp. II. 7 n - 

1. 51. <TKvo<j>6pu>v, neuter, as is shown by ra vno-\enr6n(va. Ta 
OKtv6<popa are the same as vwo&yia, 'baggage animals;' ot axtvcxpopot 
are the sutlers or camp-followers, who helped to carry the baggage. 
These are also called 6 oxAos (1. 53). 

Distinguish fxerd, TOVTWV (gen.), ' with these,' or ' among these/ from 
UtrcL ravra, ' after these things.' Cp. I. 128 n. 

1. 54. 4'0To dvTia avrois TO. oirXa, ' drew up (his men) opposite 
them.' &to9ai oir\a means 'to pile arms/ or 'halt under arms' (cp. 
I. 241 n.) : hence, with avria added, ' to take up a position under arms 
over against the enemy." 

1. 55. -n-offiaacrOai TOVS Xoxovs, ' to form their companies* into divi- 
sions of so many men each. Here the divisions were of twenty-five 
each, called ivoi^onai. Cp. IV. 1 79 n. 

1. 56. irpos TWV KapSovxwv, 'towards the Carduchi.' Ilpds roiis 
KapSovxovs would mean ' to the Carduchi.' 

oupayovs, 'leaders of the rear," from ovpcL, 'rear' (lit. 'a tail'), and 
fjy-eo/jiai, ' I lead.' [The Greeks spoke of an army metaphorically as a 
wild beast ; hence crr^a, ' mouth/ i. e. ' front ; ' Ktpas, ' horn/ i. e. 
' wing ;' ir\fvpai, ' flanks ;' ovpa, ' tail ' or ' rear/] 

1. 59. <{>8as rtvas <j8ovTs ; so Tacitus describes the ancient Germans 
as singing while they advanced to battle. 

1. 62. CKCIVOS (Lat. ille), referring to Xenophon, who is not the subject 
of the sentence. If there were no pronoun it would be doubtful whether 
he or Cheirisophus was meant. 

1. 65. Ls Sia-pTjcroiitvovs. Cp. II. 70 n. 

1. 66. irpoo-a) TOW TTOTajiov, ' far into the river/ lit. ' to a further 
point of the river/ the partitive genitive. 

1. 67. o-<|>ev86vnf], here 'a stone from a sling," though properly it means 
the sling itself. Hence enfiS^ atptvSovi) t-iKvotTo ' as soon as they 
got within a sling's cast.' Cp. 1. 261 n. 

1. 68. dams tj'o^oi, ' a shield should ring/ i. e. with the missiles from 
the slings of the enemy striking on it.

the usual signal for battle, and what the enemy would understand 
as such, though the Greeks had orders to take it the contrary way 
on this occasion. 

1. 71. T}, sc. xfy>? = ' where,' Lat. qua. Cp. 1. 22 n. 
1. 72. ri\v TO.|;IV, ' his station.' The article in Greek often = a posses- 
sive pronoun. Cp. I. 15 n. 

1. 75. TJPXOVTO, imperf. of dpxofim, ' I begin.' Cp. II. 50 n. [But 
the imperf. of tpxapai does not seem to be used except in compounds, as 
npor]px"l- >r l v < etc.] 

1. 76. iopn.T)<rav. Cp. IV. 204 n. 

1. 78. ert]|Aaut.. The signal agreed upon to mislead the enemy. 
Cp. 1. 70 n. 

1. 82. ol iroXXol, 'the greater part." The article with vo\vs gives the 
force of a superlative, hence ol iroAAoi = TrAtforoi. 

1. 83. ol two Xipi(r64>ov, etc. Cp. 1. 60. 

1. 85. T\ 8ei, ' than they ought to have done,' according to the instruc- 
tions given above in 1. 66. 

1. 88. TijXepoav iroTajiov, now the Kara Su, which flows into the 
Eastern branch of the Euphrates. The Greeks were now ascending 
into the plain which lies below the still higher elevation of Erzroum. 
The cold of this district, especially at Erzroum itself, is unusually 
severe in winter ; and this was in the beginning of December. See 
Table of Dates, p. vii. 

1. 93. Tfjs VVKTOS, gen. of time. Cp. IV. 255 n. 

wore air-tKp\M|/, ' so that it covered ' (stating a fact) ; WOT* diro

1. 98. <rx i fv (imperf.), 'began to cleave them,' or 'would cleave them.* 

K TOVTOV. Cp. I. 85 n. 

1. 100. 8ia-<ricT]VTJ<r<u, ' to take up separate quarters.' Atd is connected 
with 5i and 8vo, and denotes separation or distribution into parts. Cp. 
IV. 309 n. 

1. 107. povXi(i,la(rav, ' suffered from bulimia' or ' became faint from 
fasting." Bov-XijxCa is literally ' ravenous hunger,' the prefix ov- (from 
/3oOi, ' an ox,') denoting anything large or excessive. [Thus /3oi>-irais 
means ' an overgrown lout of a boy.' We use the prefix horse in the 
same way, as in 'Aors-chestnut/ ' Aors-laugh.'] 

1. 108. irdOos, ' complaint,' from iraO- the stem of 7raerx, ( = v&9-fffc<u), 
'I suffer.' [From the corresponding Latin word patior we get ' patient,' 
meaning one who is ill, lit. ' a sufferer. 1 ] 

1. 109. <J>aYovTs = tl (fta-foidf, ' (/"they ate.' Cp. I. 261 n. 

1. 116. Distinguish avrai, nom. pi. fern, of QVTOI, 'this,' from aural, 
nom. pi. fern, of aiirut, ' self.' 



V. THE MARCH THROUGH ARMENIA. 139 

rtvs titv, ' who they were' the opt. in an indirect question. Cp. IV. 
282 n. 

1. 1 20. Kcajxapx^v, ' head man,' a sort of chief magistrate or bailiff of 
the village, responsible of course to the Persian government. 

1. 123. ol H.TJ 8wdp,6voi, ' whoever were unable/ = ti rivts IJ.TJ Svi'cuvro, 
Lat. ' si qni nequirent.' 

1. 126. 8i-4>0apjjivoi TOVIS 6<}>0aX(xoiJs, 'having their eyesight de- 
stroyed,' lit. 'destroyed in respect of their eyes.' So in next line dno- 
aiai]tr<jTfs roiis SOKTV\OVS. 

1. 129. rijs x^vos, ' from the snow/ lit. 'as regards the snow,' gen. of 
respect. 

1. 132. -inro-SeSsntvoi, ' with their shoes on.' These were sandals, 
consisting of a mere sole fastened by straps going round the feet. 
Hence viro-btoj (lit. 'I tie below') means 'I put on sandals,' and wrro- 
Stdtptvoi, in a middle rather than a passive sense, is ' having their 
sandals on their feet.' 

1. 134. -yap explains the reason why they suffered in the manner 
described, i.e. because their new shoes were made of undressed leather. 

1. 140. tKaO-rjvTo, pluperf. of KaO-tjuai, with meaning of imperf. because 
KaO-rjfjiai is used as a present. Why is the augment placed before the 
preposition in (-KaO-rjutjv ? Cp. IV. 60 n. 

1. 141. OUK ?<|>acrav. Cp. IV. 278 n. It was here that the inci- 
dent occurred which Xenophon relates in chap. VI. 275, of a soldier 
attempting to bury a sick comrade, to save the trouble of carrying 
him. . 

1. 145. <|>op-?j<rai. Distinguish tpvfiiiv, 'to frighten,' Lat. terrere, from 
<po&(?o&m, ' to fear,' Lat. timere, 

1. 150. fJKo.v, ist aor. of ir)i*i. *E0j;/i, JjKa, and toa/co. are the three 
ist aorists which end in -o. Do not confuse Tj/cav with ^ov, imperf. 
of 7?/ca>, ' I am come. 1 

1. 156. o-Kexj/ojitvovs, fut. part, 'to see,' Lat. visuros. 

1. 158. irap-cSocrav KO|UCIV. The Greek infin. can be used to ex- 
press a purpose or intention, instead of iva or OJTCOS with the subj. and opt. 
In Latin you could not say 'aegrotos iis tradiderunt portare,' but 'tit 
portarent.' The Greek infin. is much more like the English than the 
Latin. Cp. III. 197 n. 

1. 169. oivos KpiOivos, probably a sort of 'whisky,' as would appear 
from its effects. Cp. 1. 172. 

1. 170. Distinguish aural al KpiOat, 'the grains thenif elves,' from at 
aura! npiOal, ' the same grains.' Cp. IV. 190 n. 

1. 172. aKparos, lit. 'unmixed,' from a, 'not,' and tetpavvvfu (perf. 
-Kpa-a), ' I mix.' Hence (of wine) ' strong,' because the ancients 
generally mixed their wine with water before drinking. 



140 NOTES. 

1. 173. tirtC TIS erw-0i<r0iTj, 'as soon as one got used to it.' The opt 
with tirel implies 'whenever the time might be.' 

1. 1 76. *doriv, not the Colchian Phasis, which flows westward into 
the Euxine, but the Araxes or modern Aras, which flows eastward into 
the Caspian Sea. This latter river also had the name of Phasis, and 
Xenophon seems to have confounded the" two. The district is still 
called Pasin, and the river Pasin Su. 

irapa, not 'to' the river Phasis, but 'along* it. 

Tfj-eis-T6-7T5iov-v7rp{3oXTJ. Cp. I. 109 n. 

1. 182. TOV opovs. Distinguish opos, gen. optos, -ovs, neut. 'a moun- 
tain," from opos, gen. opov, masc. ' a boundary.' 

1. 185. <*>s Taxio-ra, lit. 'as (anyone would do it) most quickly.' 
i.e. 'as quickly as possible.' Lat. qnam celerrime. Cp. us Kpanara

from the re following. Therefore ot is the article with troAt^uoj, and 
the intervening words t>w-f)fMs-6put>T(s are taken together as one word 
=an epithet of JTO\/KO. Cp. I. 109 n. 

1. 189. HTCITOVTOV, '// him,' to be distinguished from fifrcLTOvrov, 
'with him.' Cp. /T(i ravra I. 128 and n. 

I. 190. Y L Y vc ' )crKa) j ' I judge* r ' decide,' to be distinguished from oiSa, 
'I know.' YiywaKtiv means 'to get a notion* of a thing, hence 'to 
learn,' 'perceive,' or, 'judge.' [There is much the same difference 
between the French connailre and savoir."] 

II. 191, 192, 193. us KpAno-TO, us ^9<rra, is Xaxicrrovs.. Cp. 
1. 185 n. 

1. 194. K\i)/ai TV TOW opovs, lit. 'to steal a portion of the mountain,' 
i. e. 'steal our way over the mountain.* K\tnr(tv means (i) ' to steal,' 
(a) 'to do anything by stealth,' just as we speak of stealing a march 
upon the ene.my. The point of the ' banter* in the following extract

TrXrjYns Xd.p&>n,v literally refers to the punishment inflicted at Sparta 
upon those who were caught stealing. (Cp. 1. 204.) As applied to the 
present circumstances it means being ' beaten ' by the enemy. 

[This law of theft was one of the institutions ascribed to Lycurgus. 
By it the Spartan boys were not encouraged to steal in all cases, but 
only to obtain the necessaries of life; and if caught they were punished, 
not for the theft itself, but for having done the work badly. By thus 
forcing them to depend upon their own exertions for a bare subsistence, 
Lycurgus hoped to make them hardy and effective soldiers.] 

1. 207. dXXd ficvToi, ' well, as for that.' The fjtiv has its usual force 
of 'indeed' or 'certainly;' TOI is perhaps an old form of aoi, and means 
' let me tell you.'

after crossing the latter river the Greeks had marched nearly too miles 
out of their way to the north east, and were now returning in a 
direction nearly parallel to their former route, through the country 
of the Chalybes. (See foot-note on p. 141.) But it is more likely that

The word <t>d\ay does not necessarily mean a compact mass ; it was

comes from this. The proper meaning is ' a line,' Lat. acies, as opposed 
to ' a column.' In the present instance the Greeks first formed a line, but 
finding this inconvenient for marching up the hill, they ' disposed their 
companies in coltimns' (kiroi-fiaavro opQiovs rovs \6xovsl. 313). [Soldiers 
cannot march ' in line' (i. e. standing side by side) unless the ground is 
quite clear, like a parade ground. Going along roads and all ordinary 
marching is done ' in column,' i. e. some four or more abreast, and the 
rest following behind in a string.]

' circnmfiinduntur hostem Romani,' ' the Romans surround the enemy.'] 

1. 90. o-Koiriv, ' to reconnoitre.' The infin. in Greek, as in English, 
may express a result very nearly resembling a purpose. In Latin it 
would be tit observaret or ad observandum. 



158 NOTES. 

1. 92. oo-a 6pu>v, ' whatever' [lit. 'as many things as'] 'they might

Xojpiov (its diminutive"), ' a place,' or military ' position.' 

1. 1 30. [ivT]cr9iT], ' should propose ; ' lit. ' make mention of.' So the 
Latin memorare commonly means net ' to remember,' but ' to tell ' or 
' relate.' 

Sixa -iroutv, lit. ' to make twofold,' and hence ' to divide,' without 
reference to any particular number of parts. The army had actually 
split into three divisions (T/H'X??)- Cp. 1. 57.

compound a.n-(\0a.vo^w.i. Cp. VI. 315 n. 

KCU. yap, 'for in fact:' if 'for both" was meant, we should probably 
have TO. re yap. 

1. 140. els TpCs, 'up to thrice,' i.e. 'as many as three times.' [Els 
implies going right into anything, hence with numerals it means ' fully,' 
as (Is x i ^' ovs < 'f"Hy a thousand men.'] 

1. 141. tytyvtTO, sc. KctXd. The phrase ytyvfaOcu rd. Itpa was often 
used with the Ka\a, or ' favourable,' understood. 

OVIK f$i) v Qayaytlv, ' said that he would not lead out,' lit. ' denied

1. 145. ouSJ OVTCO, 'not even so,' i. e. ' not even then' after they had

1. 153. tVi TO \ap.|3avuv, 'in order to get (provisions),' lit. ' for the 
getting;' Lat ad rapiendum or rapiendi causa. The article with the 
infin. shows that the verb is used as a gerund or a substantive. Cp. I. 
24 n. 

Phamabazus was the Persian satrap of Bithynia. 

1. 155. TOUTOV. Cp. 11. 49, 134 n. 

1. 16 1. TOVS HSV..TOVS 81, ' some .. the others.' The n\v, 'on the 
one hand ' prepares the reader for a S, ' on the other hand.' 

1. 162. ls TO, oirXa, to the place where their arms were piled in camp. 
Hence rd on-Aa came to mean generally ' the camp,' or ' quarters.' 
Cp. 11. 167, 172 n.

intransitive 2nd aor. of iarr]^i. Cp. II. 99 n. 

1. 185. 8ia-|3aTov, 'must be crossed.' Aia-Paruv would mean 'possible 
to cross.' Either would make sense here, but what the soldiers were 
just now doubting was the necessity of crossing the ravine. 

1. 186. irap-cyyvwoT., 'pass the word to.' liap-t-^vav (lit. 'to pass 
on as a trust ') is to pass along the word of command. 'Eyyvij is ' a

this ; in form it might also be the 2nd pi. indicative ; the sense decides. 
Cp. 1. 26 n.

on his shoulders. Xenophon was 
strongly opposed to the popular 
government at Athens, and an ad- 
mirer of the Spartan oligarchy ; he 
was therefore glad to leave Athens 
in 401 and join Cyrus, on the in- 
vitation of his friend Proxenus, a 
Theban, whose acquaintance he had 
made when he was a prisoner at 
Thebes. After the murder of 
Clearchus he was made commander 
of the army. In the spring of 399 
he gave over the army to Thibron 
the Spartan and returned to Athens, 
Socrates had been put to death, and 
Xenophon was banished for having 
joined Cyrus, an ally of the Spartans. 
He then fought in Asia under the 
Spartan king Agesilaus, and on the
