“My Dear Cyaxares:

We have not left you deserted; for no one1 is deserted by his friends at a time when he is conquering his enemies. We do not even think that we have brought you into any danger through our departure; but we maintain that the farther away we are, the greater the security we provide for you.

1 Cyrus's answer to Cyaxares
