ἐνταῦθα...εἴπερ που ἄλλοθι. “There above all places”; so Phaedo 67 B ἐκεῖ...εἴπερ που ἄλλοθι: cp. 212 A εἴπερ τῳ ἄλλῳ...ἐκείνῳ. For ἐνταῦθα c. gen. cp. Theaet. 177 C, Rep. 328 E. For βίος βιωτός, cp. Apol. 38 A, Eur. Alc. 802.

οὐ κατὰ χρυσίον κτλ. Similar is Proverbs viii. 11 “Wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” That Socr. held this view is shown in 216 D, E. For κατά c. acc., of comparison, cp. Gorg. 512 B, Rep. 466 B.

ξυνόντες...μήτε πίνειν. Cp. 191 A ff.; also Sappho 2, Archil. 103, Soph. fr. 161 N. (ὀμμάτειος πόθος): Rel. Med. “There are wonders in true affection— when I am from him I am dead till I be with him,” etc.

τί δῆτα...οἰόμεθα. Sc. γενέσθαι αὐτῷ, or the like.
