[46] And there is something more that we, on our part, shall try to gain for the common advantage. For here,1 you observe, first of all, how many horses we have right now, and more are being brought in. If we leave them without riders, they will be of no use to us but will only give us the trouble of looking after them; but if we put riders upon them, we shall at the same time be rid of the trouble and add strength to ourselves.

1 Cyrus asks for the horses for his Persians
