In the course of this stage Tissaphernes made his appearance, having under his command the cavalry which he had himself brought with him,1 the troops of Orontas,2 who was married to the King's daughter, the barbarians whom Cyrus had brought with him on his upward march, and those with whom the King's brother had come to the aid of the King3; besides these contingents Tissaphernes had all the troops that the King had given him; the result was, that his army appeared exceedingly large.
