Presocratic philosopher-poets

John Bjarne Grover

All the fragments after Heraclitus composed into a single poem.

The same for Xenophanes - but this rough translation serves mainly the purpose of showing that there could be doubts about the authenticity - it is not intended as an interesting translation.

Xenophon's Anabasis
The role of the post-socratic story-teller Xenophon's autobiographic account of the greek expedition into what today seems to be Kurdistan - the fragment could be a hypothetical background of modern political interests in a Black Sea loop.
