Lesson XIV Paragraph 133 part 5

The English reads:
It was right for Cyrus to send gifts to his soldiers.

One possible translation is"
a1cion h]n tw|~ Ku=rw|~ dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.

However, that sentence has two dative nouns (one of which is subjective, so it shurely can't be right).

Another possible translation is:
a1cion h]n, o9 ga\r Ku=roj dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.
But that sentence is now broken by a comma, and so doesn't seem quite right.



Any thoughts? ...
