Named for the Athenian nobleman, pupil and interpreter of Socrates, historian, agriculturist, and military officer who lived from about 440 to 354 B.C. Because of his support of Spartan culture and politics he was exiled from Athens. He participated in a military expedition against the Persian king Artaxerxes and, after his defeat near Babylon in 401 B.C., he prevailed to lead the army of 10~000 Greek mercenaries safely home through the mountains of Asia Minor, a great feat described in his famous book Anabasis.
