Xenophon (c. 420-350 BCE)

“As you know, everything that belongs to the losers in a war becomes someone else’s property, while if we win we can regard our enemies as our baggage-handlers.”

  • Anabasis Kyrou (Upcountry March of Cyrus, Book III, section 2) by Xenophon and translated by Robin Waterfield (New York: Oxford University Press, 2005).
