Xenophon (428-354 b.c.e.) Athenian aristocrat, soldier and historian. His Memorabilia in four books records the reminiscences of Socrates with the intent of defending the sage against charges of impiety towards the gods. The discussions also focus on education and management of state. [ESTC T145020; Schweiger I, p.338].
