After this Xenophon rose and said: “Fellow soldiers, our journey, it seems, must be made by land, for we have no ships; and we must set out at once, for we have no provisions if we remain here. We, then,” he continued, “will sacrifice, and you must prepare yourselves to fight if ever you did; for the enemy have renewed their courage.”
