Hello,I am referencing a quote from Plato's Symposium from your excellent website and need to know what date it was posted. The text I'm quoting from is translated by B. Jowett - can you actually give me the exact documentation  needed for a reference?

Hi Robin,

Although good, it is not *necessary to have the date of publication. I don't remember the exact date (2003 or 2004, I think - and of course I can't say anything about the month).

Just enter the date you accessed the file, and in general, give as many details as you know. For example (in the case of your text), the citation would be:

Plato, A nature of wondrous beauty, (excerpt from Plato's Symposium, 209e-212c, translated by B. Jowett). Retrieved: March 3, 2006, from ellopos.net (http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/greek-texts/ancient-greece/plato-love-god.asp)


This an acceptable (e.g. by APA) way to cite a web resourceAdd a note!
