Compiled by Eugene F. Irey

ET5 5.91 25 In the same [English] spirit, were the
excavation and research by Sir Charles Followes for the Xanthian
Xanthus, n. (1)
Tran 1.350 17 All that the brave Xanthus brings home
from his wars is the recollection that at the storming of Samos, in the
heat of the battle, Pericles smiled on me, and passed on to another
Xanthus, Turkey, n. (1)
Edc1 10.145 22 ...Sir Charles Fellowes...being at

Xenophanes, n. (3)
Nat 1.43 6 Xenophanes complained in his old age,
that...all things hastened back to Unity.
LE 1.160 26 Any history of philosophy fortifies my
faith, by showing me that what high dogmas I had supposed were...only
now possible to some recent Kant or Fichte,-were the prompt
improvisations of the earliest inquirers; of Parmenides, Heraclitus,
Ill 6.324 5 The early Greek philosophers Heraclitus
and Xenophanes measured their force on this problem of identity.
Xenophon, n. (11)

people, as Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon, and Plutarch have given
Hist 2.25 2 ...[in the Grecian period] the habit of

Hsm1 2.258 9 The pictures which fill the imagination
in reading the actions of...Xenophon...teach us how needlessly mean our
Chr1 3.101 12 Xenophon and his Ten Thousand were

Boks 7.200 21 An inestimable trilogy of ancient
