Author Bio for Xenophon

Author Image

Xenophon (430-354 B.C.E.) was a Greek philosopher, soldier, and writer. Born near Athens, his early life was spent fighting as a mercenary soldier against the Persians and also against his home state in an army of Spartans. Xenophon was exiled as a result and he spent the rest of his life in Elis, near Olympia. Xenophon is best known for his work called "Memorabilia". He was a pioneer of several literary genres including the first-person military memoir, "Anabasis", biographical novels, "Education of Cyrus" and historical writing, "Hellenica".
