This man was a general of Chosroes.[1]
Menander [writes]: "but Tanchosdro, Chosroes' general, having collected not elephants and a mass of wild beasts and other such terrors -- suitable for a boast but in no way effective and weighty --, but [sc. instead] the men bravest at fighting and best armed, as an answer to [that] ignoble mass, having picked out those skilled in war."[2]
