A xynoris, he says,[1] was the term in the old days for two horses yoked at the necks. On the one there was a driver, and on the other a hoplite. And now they are used, on official duties, by the Alibyes, who are also called Zeugnitai.[2] The same thing is also called a(/mippon. Thus Thucydides [uses the term].[3]
