τί: depends upon τῶν σοφῶν. τὰ τί σοφά; i.e. the knowledge relating to what? in the next line the thought is completed, τὰ προ^ς τὴν ἀπεργασίαν τὴν τῶν εἰκόνων that which relates to the portrayal of forms.

καὶ τἆλλα οὕτως: sc. εἴποιμεν ἄν. So freq. with καὶ τἆλλα a verb is to be supplied from the context, i.e. 319b καὶ τἆλλα πάντα οὕτως sc. ποιοῦντας, Symp. 176a καὶ τἆλλα τὰ νομιζόμενα sc. ποιήσαντας, Gorg. 509 c δευτέραν δὲ τὴν τοῦ δευτέρου κακοῦ (sc. βοήθειαν) καὶ τρίτην τὴν τοῦ τρίτου, καὶ τἆλλα οὕτως (sc. ἔχειν).

ἐστί: sc. ἐπιστήμων from the previous context.

ἐπιστάτης: here equiv. to ἐπιστήμων, as comes out clearly in Crito 47 b τῷ ἐπιστάτῃ καὶ ἐπαΐοντι.—

τί... λανγ̂γρεεκ>: equiv. to τί ἄλλο . . . .
