When in doubt, leave it out!  It’s not required unless needed for differentiation from another work.

Subject: Loeb classical library; authority work


Before I go to far into this and creating uniform titles for classical works in Loeb Classical Library, I would like to know what I use for the date of creation in the 046.  Book in hand: Apology ; De spectaculis / Tertullian. Octavius / Minucius Felix.  T.p. verso: first printed 1931, 1953, 1963, 1966.  T.p.: MCMLXVI.  The latter is in the imprint area.

I think the correct date of creation is 1931 even though the series was owned by another publisher allied with Heinemann. See record *39829413, LCCN: 31023025.
