ἄλλο: we should have expected τὸ μὲν ἄλλο. Cf. Phil. 56 d πῇ ποτὲ διορισάμενος οὖν ἄλλην, τὴν δὲ ἄλλην θείη τις ἂν ἀριθμητικήν how would you distinguish between the one and the other arithmetic? So often δέ without a preceding μέν (G. 143, N. 2). Cf. 331 a, 334 a, 343 e, 355 e, Theaet. 181 d δύο δὴ λέγω τούτω εἴδη κινήσεως, ἀλλοίωσιν, τὴν δὲ περιφοράν I say now that there are these two kinds of motion, change, and motion in place, Symp. 207 d οὐδέποτε τὰ αὐτὰ ἔχων ἐν αὑτῷ ὅμως αὐτὸς καλεῖται, ἀλλὰ νέος ἀεὶ γιγνόμενος, τὰ δὲ ἀπολλύς for he never retains the same substance, while yet called the same man, but in part he is ever becoming new, and in part he is suffering loss.

δύναμιν: force, efficiency, then nature, peculiar quality.
