[19] Again, I observe that there are horses in the army—a few at my own quarters, others that made part of Clearchus' troop and were left behind,1 and many others that have been taken from the enemy and are used as pack-animals.

1 i.e. when Clearchus' troopers deserted to the King (Xen. Anab. 2.2.7).
