"This is an interesting map of Xenophon's Anabasis and the March of the Ten Thousand. Actually they were originally 13,000 Greek mercenaries under the command of Clearchos and then under the famous Xenophon.

There was a movie "loosely based" on the Anabasis called The Warriors made in 1979. It is set in New York City in which charismatic gang leader, Cyrus, is killed in a bid to take control. A street gang, the Warriors, is forced to fight their way home while under attack from hostile gangs. While Xenophon would probably hate it, the film is entertaining (or it was when I saw it almost 40 years ago).

Thalatta, thalatta!
