Sample text

Despite their agreement to share Italy as a neutral military recruiting ground, Octavian clearly intended to block any attempt his erstwhile partner might make to raise funds or men in Italy. If he were to take on the Parthians, Antony needed to raise massive funding in order to recruit and train a really big army. And this meant a return to Egypt and Cleopatra. The queen was ready to negotiate and a deal was struck: She would pay for his legions; Antony in turn granted Cleopatra control of certain clientterritories under Roman control and he recognized as legitimate his twin children by Cleopatra: Alexander Helios (“the Sun”) and Cleopatra Selene (“the Moon”).

But, contrary to all expectations, whereas Octavian’s campaign went like clockwork (thanks to the careful advance planning of Agrippa), Antony’s campaign against the Parthians proved to be an unmitigated disaster. The route of invasion, through Armenia and down the headwaters of the Tigris to the heart of Parthian territory, was well thought through— carefully avoiding the open desert terrain that had doomed Crassus at Carrhae. But the departure of the expedition from its Armenian base was unaccountably delayed, forcing Antony to push his infantry ahead of his siege-train in the march south.

Phaedon of Elis is just a name. Mere scraps of quotations of his two Socratic dialogues are extant. A near contemporary of Plato and Xenophon, he too was a small boy at the time of Delium. Nothing remains either of the work of Aristippus or Cebes, who both purportedly wrote panegyrics of Socrates. Thus we are left with the conclusion that most Socratic followers who were inspired to write about their mentor did so only after meeting him in the period after the battle of Delium—when they were of an age to wander along after the itinerant interlocutor.
