Seneca the Younger’s Apocolocyntosis: A Correction

The Apocolocyntosis (“pumpkinification”) is a first-century political satire of Emperor Claudius attributed to Seneca the Younger. SBLHS 8.3.14.3 incorrectly lists the work as Apolocyntosis, which results in the incorrect abbreviation Apol. The correct form of the work and abbreviation should be as follows:

Apocol. Apocolocyntosis

A translation of the work by W. H. D. Rouse is available here from Project Gutenberg.
