ἔφη: see on 330 d. — The proof that σοφία and σωφροσύνη must coincide, because they are both the contrary of the concept ἀφροσύνη, rests simply on the indefiniteness of the concept ἀφροσύνη. It must be admitted that Plato was entirely conscious of this, but intentionally lets Socrates confuse and vanquish the sophists with their own weapons. See on 329 c.
