87. εἰσαῦθις σκεψόμεθα. Siebeck, who asserts (Zur Chronologie der Platonischen Dialogen, pp. 121 ff.) that this and similar formulas were intended by Plato to be a distinct promise of future dialogues (if not a reference to a later part of the same dialogue), finds here a reference to Politicus, 283D ff., where the ‘measuring art’ is discussed and described as the βασιλικὴ τέχνη.
