27. Ὀρθαγόρᾳ τῷ Θηβαίῳ. Orthagoras is said by Athenaeus (IV. 184E) on the authority of Aristoxenus to have taught Epaminondas how to play the flute.

29. αὐτόν but ἐκείνου in 28 and ἐκείνω̣ in 30: see on 310D εἰς τι βελτίων is here used rather than τι or τί βελτίων (as in l. 25) to prepare for εἰς αὔλησιν, where the preposition could hardly be dispensed with.

31. οὕτω δή. Heindorf would write οὕτω δέ, which is frequent after ὥσπερ, e.g. 328A see his note on Phaedo, 72C.
