MT (mt61) | 1 comments The works by the Roman playwright Plautus in this volume were first performed/published c. 205 184 BCE. But on Goodreads its listed as published 2013, which is correct insofar as this new translation goes. But shouldn't it be listed as being published c. 200 BCE?

Sandra | 24695 comments The original publication date should be 205 BCE.

I've added -205 to the original publication date. I'm pretty sure that's how we go BCE but if not someone is bound to come along and correct me.
