r with Tissaphernes and Pharnal azus, Xenophon and his troops were invited to join the army of Thimbron, and Xenophon led them back out of Asia to join Thimbron B. C. 399. Xenophon, who was very poor, made an expedition into the plain of the Caicus with his troops before they joined Thimbron, to plunder the house and property of anophon, by this robbery, replenished his empty pockets (Anab. 7.8.23). He tells the story himself as if he were not ashamed of it. Socrates was put to death in B. C. 399, and it seems probable that Xenophon was banished either shortly before or shortly after that event.

C. 399. the very year in which, according to Pliny, Zeuxis began to flourish. But for this king he executed an important and e which is worth repeating, both for its own sake, and as showing that the work must have been executed some time before B. C. 399 (when Socrates himself was put to death), and yet after the fame of Zeuxis had been spread far and wide --" Archelaüs," he presented to Archelaüs : another proof that he had reached the summit of his reputation before that king's death in B.
