καὶ [περὶ] οἷον κτλ. περὶ is retained by Hommel and Stallb. who renders “quale sit in quo tractando versari debeat is qui boni viri nomen et dignitatem obtinere velit,” taking οἷον as neut., and by Rettig who regards the “redundance and tautology” of the words as due to the “sophistical character” of the passage. τοῦ καλοῦ. This is masc., not neuter, as the context shows. καὶ παρὼν καὶ ἀπὼν. A rhetorical formula; cp. Soph. Antig. 1109 “οἵ τ᾽ ὄντες οἵ τ᾽ ἀπόντες” : El. 305: Crat. 420 A, Laws 635 A. As Hommel observes, μεμνημένος (sc. αὐτοῦ) can in strictness apply only to ἀπών. τὸ γεννηθὲν κτλ. Cp. 207 B, Phaedrus 276 E. τῆς τῶν παίδων. Hug prints τῶν χ χ χ παίδων with the note (after Vermehren) “es scheint ein Epitheton wie φύσει o. ähnl. ausgefallen zu sein.” Stallb. explains ἡ κοινωνία τῶν παίδων to mean “conjunctio ex liberorum procreatione oriunda.” The simplest remedy is to bracket the words τῆς τῶν παίδων (see crit. n.). ἀθανατωτέρων. For this Hibernian comparison cp. Phaedo 99 C.
