Extract

Themistogenes of *Syracuse, pseudonym under which *Xenophon(1) published the Anabasis (Hell. 3. 1, 2), in order to create the impression of greater objectivity (Plut.Mor. 345). The *Suda accepts Themistogenes' historicity; but it is unlikely that a third author should have written on the march of the 10,000 in addition to *Sophaenetus (FGrH109) and Xenophon.
