Dear list readers,

We have “Plato's Republic: the myth of Er” to catalog .
Wikipedia says of the myth
The Myth of Er is a legend that concludes Plato<>'s Republic<> (10.614–10.621). The story includes an account of the
cosmos and the afterlife that greatly influenced religious, philosophical, and scientific thought for many centuries.

For subject access, is the better approach to treat it as a portion of text and (on the lines of eg. no2013118439),
set it up as  Plato. ǂt Republic. ǂn Book 10, lines 614-621
or, on the other hand, is it closer to this below and should we be submitting it as an LCSH proposal?
