[79] 22. Again, in Xenophon,1 Cyrus the Elder utters the following words as he is dying: “Think not, my dearest sons, that, when I have left you, I shall cease to be. For while I was with you you did not see my soul, but you knew that it was in this body from the deeds that I performed. Continue to believe, therefore, that it exists as before, even though you see it not. ”

1 Xenophon, Cyropaedia, viii. 7. 17–22.
