ὅταν γὰρ κτλ. Notice the balance and rhythm of the clauses in this sentence—(a^{1}) ὅταν...ἑκάτερος, (b^{1}) μὲν...ὑπηρετῶν, (b^{2}) δὲ...ὑπουργῶν, (c^{1}) μὲν...ξυμβάλλεσθαι, (c^{2}) δὲ...κτᾶσθαι, (a^{2}) τότε δὴ...ἐνταῦθα, (a^{3}) ξυμπίπτει...οὐδαμοῦ.

ὑπηρετεῖν...ὑπουργεῖν. Both words are used in an erotic sense. So ὑπουργία is used in re venerea, Amphis Ἰαλ. That ὑπουργῶν <ὑπουργεῖν> is the best restoration is shown by Vahlen Op. Acad. I. 499 ff.: cp. 193 C.
