τί οὖν δή: well! what then? See on 453 b and 515 e.

ὡς ἑτέρων ὄντων: this seems otiose after the preceding sentence. If genuine, it must be considered as mere conversational fulness.

τῇδε: refers naturally, according to the regular usage, to the argument begun in τοὺς ἀγαθοὺς κτἑ. The introduction of this argument is, however, delayed by the parenthetical clause οἶμαι . . . ἄθρει δέ. In this clause ταύτῃ, though in sense also applicable to the argument which follows, is in form to be connected with τῇδε. The subject of ὁμολογεῖσθαι is general, and can be supplied from the clause πῶς οὖν κτἑ.
