28. ἔμπορός τε καὶ κάπηλος. ἔμπορός τε καὶ κάπηλος together make a plural, and according to strict logic would require a plural article; but is written by attraction instead of the grammatically impossible οἱ. Cf. Symp. 186C διαγιγνώσκωντὸν καλόν τε καὶ αἰσχρὸν ἔρωτα; below, 355Eτά ὀνόματατὸ ἡδύ τε καὶ ἀνιαρόν.
