πεφάνθαι ἂν oblique of πεφασμένος ἂν ἦν: for the tense cp. Isoc. 5.56 “λοιπὸν ἂν ἦν ... εἰ μὴ ἐπεποίητο.” Whitelaw, taking πεφάνθαι μ᾽ ἄν as oblique of πεφασμένος ἂν εἴην, defends the εἴ σε νοσφίζομαι of the MSS. by Plat. Phaedrus 228a “εἰ ἐγὼ Φαῖδρον ἀγνοῶ, καὶ ἐμαυτοῦ ἐπιλέλησμαι,” and Plat. Apol. 25b “πολλὴ ἄν τις εὐδαιμονία εἴη περὶ τοὺς νέους, εἰ εἷς μὲν μόνος αὐτοὺς διαφθείρει, κ.τ.λ.” But the playful or ironical tone which εἰ with the pres. indic. gives to those passages seems hardly in place here. The change of one letter restores the required ἐνοσφιζόμαν.
