Please, voici :

I added some alternative word orders when there was a δέ after a preposition.

237.
the messengers will proceed from the market place to the tents.
1. οἱ ἄγγελοι ?κ (rather kappa before consonant) τῆς ἀγο?ᾶς εἰς τὰς σκηνὰς (accusative) πο?ε?σονται.
Cyrus and his staff proceed immediately to the palace.
2. Κῦ?ος καὶ οἱ ἀμφὶ α?τὸν πο?ε?ονται ε?θὺς πα?ὰ τὰ βασίλεια (neuter plural :!: ).
he had a stronghold above the village.
3. ὑπε? δὲ τῆς κώμης χω?ίον ἰσχυ?ὸν εἶχε. / χω?ίον δ᾽ ὑπε? τῆς κώμης ἰσχυ?ὸν εἶχε.
before the battle the generals sacrefied in their tents to the gods.
4. π?ὸ δὲ τῆς μάχης ?ν ταῖς σκηναῖς οἱ στ?ατηγοὶ θεοῖς ?θύσαν. / . οἱ δὲ στ?ατηγοὶ π?ὸ τῆς μάχης ?ν ταῖς σκηναῖς θεοῖς ?θύσαν.

247.
this thief was dishonored.
1. ὅδε ? κλὼψ (κλέπτης) ἠτιμάζετο (imperfect) / ἠτιμάσθη (aorist)
the Cilicians have horses.
2. οἱ Κίλικες ἵππους ἔχουσιν.
The sent Thracian guards.
3. Θ?ᾴκας φύλακας ἔπεμψε.
the heavy-armed men had breastplates.
4. οἱ ?πλῖται θώ?ακας εἶχον.
