Xenophon (c.434-c.355 BC) – Greek historian and general
Xenophon studied philosophy under the great Socrates p. 20). Then he fought in Persia and reached high rank, leading an army of 10,000 Greeks back to their country. After his war service, however, Xenophon settled down to a life of serious historical writing, and he wrote an account of the Persian expedition of Cyrus the Younger, called the Anabasis, a history of Greece from about 400, called Hellenica, and a book on Socrates called Memorabilia. He also wrote a Symposium, a record of discussions with Socrates.
