The Greeks go into the Taochians' land but have no provisions. Got to a place with no city but lots of peeps and cattle. Continuous divisions attacked, Chir told Xenophon that they were getting crushed by stones, X said let them waste them.
X says the distance is short with lots of pine trees which they should stand under not to get crushed and then the distance to run across is small. Part of the rearguard advances, 70 men go under the trees , some take up positions outside.
Callimachus runs forwards and retreats so the Taochians waste their stones. He, Agasias, Aristonumus and Eurylochus compete to get up there first. They capture the place but Taochians commit mass suicide. Aeneas dies trying to get a nice robe.
They captured some men. They marched through the Chalybians' land but they were non-confrontational. Arrived at the river Harpasus, went through the Scythenians' land, then arrived at Gymnias, the ruler gave them a guide.
The guide led the Greeks for 5 days to a mountain. He wanted them to burn the land. Everyone got a bit excited at the top. Xenophon thought an enemy was attacking. They went up and saw the sea. They made a Karen and sent the guide away with gifts.
