Translated title:
A Man Perfectly Good? Agesilaus in Xenophon's Works
Summary:
This paper examines the prominent place of Agesilaus in Xenophon’s Hellenica and Agesilaus. The goal of the paper is to show the historian’s stand on the king’s strategy and his opinion regarding Agesilaus’s responsibility for the fall of Sparta in the 4th century BC. While taking the conventions of each genre into consideration, it is shown that Xenophon tries to be objective toward Agesilaus in Hellenica and that he avoids to idealize him as he does in Agesilaus’s biography. At the same time, it is shown that the historian does not find Agesilaus responsible for the decline of Sparta like other contemporary and later authors.
