ἀμφότεροι...ἄρρενες. “H. e. ἄρρενος ἑνός” Stallb. As Wolf (like Stallb.) says, ἄρρενες τὴν φύσιν means “mares origine, τμήματα seu τεμάχια τοῦ ἄρρενος,” and implies further, as Rettig notes, “mares natura, geborene Päderasten.” ἀπελθὼν. “Returning,” “being restored to”: so, perhaps, ἀπῇμεν πρὸς τὸ ἄστυ Rep. 327 B; cp. πάλιν ἀπιέναι Phaedrus 227 E, etc. Hence Mehler's ἐπανελθών is superfluous. ὑμνοῦντες...ὑμνοῖμεν. Cp. 184 D ὑπηρετῶν ὁτιοῦν δικαίως ἂν ὑπηρετεῖν κτλ.: and Agathon's echo of the word (ἐφυμνοῦντα) in 197 E.
