previous next
τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ: loosely added, epexeg. of ἐνταῦθα. Regularly, when two dats. are connected, of the whole and of a part, the dat. of the whole precedes. Cf. 339 e, 1. 44, Rep. iii. 407 b νοσοτροφία (diet in disease) τεκτονικῇ μὲν καὶ ταῖς ἄλλαις τέχναις ἐμπόδιον νῇ προσέξει τοῦ νοῦ (the application of the mind)? Lach. 190 b τοῖς υιέσιν αὐτῶν ἀρετὴ παραγενομένη ταῖς ψυχαῖς.

μέλλει: for the change of number from ἀσθενοῦσι, see on 319 d.

ὅσον μόνον: equiv. to τοσούτῳ μόνον ὥστε. Cf. Theaet. 145 a οὖν ζωγραφικὸς Θεόδωρος; THEAET. οὐχ, ὅσον γέ με εἰδέναι. — Thus Protagoras's reply to the question δοκοῦσί τινές σοι σωφρονεῖν ἀδικοῦντες, ends somewhat wide of the mark, but gains the applause of the listeners. See on 328 d.

ὡς: how. Cf. 315 b, 1. 35, Crito 43 b πάλαι θαυμάζω αἰσθανόμενος ὡς ἡδέως καθεύδεις.

ἐπιλήσμων τις : τὶς indicates that the object approximately corresponds to the word; here somewhat. See on 313 c, l. 22. See H. 702 a.
