Reading at Random in Classical Literature
Xenophon rounds off his ‘history of Greece’, which began at the point where Thucydides stopped.
ἐμοὶ μὲν δὴ μέχρι τούτου γραφέσθω· τὰ δὲ μετὰ ταῦτα ἴσως ἄλλῳ μελήσει.
Let it be written by me up to this point, but as for the subsequent events, perhaps someone else will concern himself with them.
