[303a] or what shall we say? Is that not inevitable?

Hippias
It appears so.

Socrates
Shall we say, then, that both are beautiful, but that each is not?

Hippias
What is to prevent?

Socrates
This seems to me, my friend, to prevent, that there were some attributes thus belonging to individual things, which belonged, we thought, to each, if they belonged to both, and to both, if they belonged to each—I mean all those attributes which you specified.1 Am I right?

Hippias
Yes.

Socrates
But those again which I specified2 did not; and among those were precisely “each” and “both.” Is that so?

Hippias
It is.
