Symposium Participants

Having been scolded for anachronism in writing a dialogue in which Glaukon converses not with his brother Adeimantos but with Alkestis's husband Admetos, it seems to me that I should write down some real, actual Platonic dialogue names to avoid such grevious intellectual blunders in the future. So, from the Symposium and the Republic:

Apollodoros
Agathon
Sokrates
Alkibiades
Phoenix
Philippos
Glaukon
Adeimantos
Aristodemos
Eryximachos
Aristophanes
Phaedros
Pausanias
Diotima
Platon
Ariston
Polemarchos
Niceratos
Nicias
Thrasymachos
Lysias
Euthydemos
Charmantides
Klitophon
Aristonymos
Kephalos
