Excerpt from Travels of Anacharsis the Younger in Greece, Vol. 2 of 7: During the Middle of the Fourth Century Before the Christian ?ra

The history of his life and death inspired me, from my earliest childhood, with esteem for the nation which had honoured, and with distaste for that which knew not how to appreciate, his virtues.

This disgust was still more increased by the arrival of a Greek slave, whom I purchased. He was of one of the principal families of Thebes in B?otia. About thirty six years before, he had followed the younger Cyrus in the expedition undertaken by that prince, against his brother Artaxerxes king of Persia. Being taken prisoner in one of those engagements to which the Greeks were compelled in their retreat, he frequently changed masters, and wore the chains of servitude in different nations, till chance brought him to the country in which I lived.

The more I became acquainted with him, the more sensible was I of the ascendancy of an enlightened over an uninstructed people. Timagenes, for that was the Theban's name, at once delighted and humbled me by the charms of his conversation, and the superiority of his knowledge. The history of the Greeks, their manners, governments, sciences, arts, festivals, and spectacles, were the inexhaustible topics of our conversation. I interrogated him, and I listened to his replies with transport.
