μέν is not balanced by φρονεῖς δ᾽ （as if we had οὐ βλέπεις μέν）, but by the thought of the expected healer （310）. The δὲ after φρονεῖς introduces the apodosis after a concessive protasis, as Hdt. 8.22 “εἰ δὲ ὑμῖν ἐστι τοῦτο μὴ δυνατὸν ποιῆσαι, ὑμέες δὲ”（then） ἔτι καὶ νῦν ἐκ τοῦ μέσου ἡμῖν ἕζεσθε. Xen. Cyrop. 5.5.21 “ἀλλ᾽ εἰ μηδὲ τοῦτο ... βούλει ἀποκρίνασθαι, σὺ δὲ τοὐτεῦνθεν λέγε.”
