This chapter provides the original text and translation of the second part of the Hellenika, which is considered both the best and worst of Xenophon. It covers events after the end of the Peloponnesian War, from the late summer of 404 until the Spring of 394 when Agesilaos was recalled. It also recounts the story of subsequent Lakedaimonian activities that Xenophon was faulted for, such as the one-sided and inaccurate view of Athenian oligarchs. The chapter mentions the installation of the Thirty Tyrants in Athens, the battles of Thibron and Derkylidas in Asia Minor, the rise to power of King Agesilaos, the Spartan War against Elis, the treachery of Kinadon, the battles of Agesilaos in Asia Minor, and the war against Sparta in Greece. The chapter also explores Xenophon's best speeches, cleverest dialogues, and selected manners of expression.

Keywords:   Xenophon, Hellenika, Peloponnesian War, Agesilaos, Athenian oligarchs, Thirty Tyrants
