    How would you reference this?

    I'm trying to reference a guy called Velde, who is quoting Plutarch. I figured just writing something like "(Velde, 1967., citing Plutarch...)" would be fine, but Velde's reference of Plutarch is this:


    Plutarch
    De Iside et Osiride c. 12; cf Th. Hopfner, Plutarch über Isis und Osiris I, Praha, 1940, p. 21 sq.


    So that means that it was Hopfner who was citing Plutarch, and that's what Velde is referencing?

    I then looked up the Hopfner reference and it's listed as:

    Hopfner, TH., Plutarch über Isis and Osiris, I-II, Praha, 1940-1941.


    Ummm... so yeah, I'm confused. What do you think?
