The original publication of Rowe's translation in 1995 was a landmark event in the study of this fascinating but enigmatic dialogue. Based on a careful and convincing revised Greek text, the contemporary English of this unpretentious, clear, and-above all-accurate version [Hackett Publishing Co.] make it by far the best available. In fact, Rowe's translation is now and will surely remain the only acceptable choice." - John Cooper 0520200144
