ἀπαλλάττεται: the subj. is to be supplied from the previous question of Socrates (ἆρ᾽ οὖν . . . ἰατρευόμενοι). The trans. use of ἰατρεύειν is not common.

ὑγιῆ: on the form, see H. 231 b.

ἆρ᾽ οὖν κτἑ.: Socrates proceeds now to fulfil the promise made in 473 a.

οὕτως: is explained by the partic. which follows.

τουτ᾽ ἦν κτἑ.: on the gender, see H. 617; G. 138, N. 2 c. The impf. of ‘awakening’ is often employed with ἄρα or its equivalents (ὡς ἔοικε). See H. 833.

τὴν ἀρχὴν μηδὲ κτῆσις: is the substantival, hence the general expression for the previous particular partic. clause. τὴν ἀρχήν is construed with κτῆσις, which thus far retains its verbal nature.
