I've read a short passage from Xenophon's Anabasis book 1, but I do not really have any feel for where the narrative is at (bk. 1, 4,8 ).
I'd like to find a brief outline of the work. Does anybody know if there's, like, a synopsis one could see online somewhere?
Also, I have trouble understanding this phrase, where Cyrus gets to the river Chalos which is described thus:
[face=spionic]to\n Xa/lon potamo/n, o)/nta to\ eu)=roj ple/qrou, ...[/face]
The participle sure refers to the river, but what kind of syntax explains the other two words? There is, surely, a relation?
