Egil’s Saga is Scudder’s translation. The various Pseudo-Platonic pieces – Axiochus, Demodocus, On Justice, On Virtue, Sisyphus, Minos, Definitions, and Epistles (minus the Seventh Letter) are Burges’ translations. The Eryxias and Laws are Jowett’s. The Hipparchus, Rival Lovers, and Epinomis are Lamb’s. The Statesman is Skemp’s. The Seventh Letter is Harward’s.

Another great month, but as per July’s note, a fair number of these reads were short. On the other hand, I can now say I have read the entire Platonic corpus, including the apocrypha. Yay. 🙂
