What is the correct way to read "Listing 17-2" in English? Dash or hyphen, seventeen or seventeenth, two or second ?

I've used Google Translate to read it and it is something like: Seventeenth Two, Did I heard it correctly?

See above. Don't forget that after the auxiliary verb "did", we use the bare infinitive.

Did I hear you correctly?
You heard me correctly.
You didn't hear me correctly.

Did you buy some tea?
I bought some tea.
I didn't buy any tea.

They took the car.
They didn't take the car.
