τοτὲ μὲν … ἄλλοτ᾽. L has “τοτὲ” here: cp. El. 739 “τότ᾽” (i.e. “τοτὲ”) “ἅλλος, ἅλλοθ᾽ α̈τερος”: Phaedr. 237 E “τοτὲ μὲν ἡ ἑτέρα, ἅλλοτε δὲ ἡ ἑτέρα κρατεῖ”. Cp. O. C. 1745 n. There is no reason, then, for reading “ποτὲ μέν” here with inferior MSS., though it is equally good (Plato has “ποτὲ μὲν” answered by “ποτὲ δέ”, by “ἐνίοτε δέ”, or by “αὖθις δέ”). ἐπ᾽ with “κακόν” as well as “ἐσθλόν”: cp. 212 n. on “κἀς”.
