παιδεία ἐκλήθη. For “education” as “the right use of melody and verse,” compare what Plato has to say about the psychological effects of music and its place in education in Rep. II., III., Laws II., VIII. Of course παιδεία in the ordinary sense includes also gymnastic; cp. Rep. II. 376 E, Laws 659 D: in dancing to music (ὀρχηστική Laws 816 A) we have a combination of both. It is worth noticing that in the Pythagorean quadrivium μουσική had a place beside ἀριθμητική, γεωμετρία and σφαιρική or ἀστρονομία: see Adam's Republic vol. II. pp. 163 ff. πάλιν...ὁ αὐτὸς λόγος. Pausanias was the author of the λόγος, cp. 186 B supra.
