PLATO: AN INTERPRETATION - errata
While translating my Plato: An Interpretation into Arabic, I made a number of corrections in the original, these were mostly minor typos, but there were also a couple of words that I had to alter and a couple of phrases that had to be reconstructed. I arranged with Virtualbookworm to incorporate the corrections in copies to be printed in future. I am giving below the list of corrections as submitted to Virtualbookworm, in case any reader who already has a copy may care to print out these corrections and pin them to the book. Subsequently I found that I had missed one typo: on page 196, para. 1, l. 7, the word eporexesthai appears with an extra h in the final syllable.

I have now edited the post to make it somewhat better. I hope now it is of some use.
