520    Mercenaries were a significant factor in many of the wars 
       of the Classical world, being employed in large numbers by
       many states. By far the most famous were Xenophon's 'Ten 
       Thousand', who had to cut their way out of the Persian 
       Empire after the death of their employer and such Greek 
       infantry were for long the most dominant type (even a 
       Spartan king hiring himself out in one case), but there 
       was a wide variety of mercenaries available. Some, such as
       Celts and Thracians were hired largely for their love of 
       fighting, while others were valued for their specialist 
       skills, such as Cretan archers or slingers from Rhodes or 
       the Balearic Islands.
