A good point, and yes I did use a different translation because I am writing a piece for public history. I have my students read "The trial and Death of Socrates" where we thoroughly discuss that exact quote, its misrepresentations and mistranslations as well as the real meaning. For the purposes of a short essay (written after two glasses of wine with numerous typos)I found this a better translation to use and preserve the original context. However it warms my heart that you nitpick because it gives me hope. I think of RP constantly throughout the lesson every time I teach it.
