Xenophon's Anabasis, edited by George Townsend
A King's Scholar at Eton, Okes went to King's in 1817, returning as an assistant master in 1823. In 1838 he became Lower Master and in 1850 he was elected Provost of King's. He abolished the system that allowed Kingsmen to obtain degrees without examination.
