Carsten's advice is spot on.

Let's go a bit further.

First, a -twoway dot- without a grid of dots is equivalent to a -scatter-.

scatter price rep78

Second, if you want to show distributions a bit more clearly by
stacking and/or jittering, try

dotplot price, over(rep78)

stripplot price, over(rep78) vertical
stripplot price, over(rep78) vertical stack width(500)

-stripplot- is from SSC.
