59. πολλά γε ἔτη ἤδη εἰμὶ ἐν τῇ τέχνῃ. Meno, 91E οἶμαι γὰρ αὐτὸν (i.e. Πρωταγόραν) ἀποθανεῖν ἐγγὺς καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα ἔτη γεγονότα, τετταράκοντα δὲ ἐν τῇ τέχνῃ ὄντα. The phrases εἶναι ἐν τῇ τέχνῃ, ἐν φιλοσοφίᾳ and the like are common.

60. οὐδενὸς ὅτου οὐ. For the asyndeton Heindorf compares Hom. Od. XIV. 96 γάρ οἱ ζωή γ᾽ ἦν ἄσπετος: οὔ τινι τόσση ἀνδρῶν ἡρώων. The nearest parallel to πάντων (which Cobet rejects) after οὐδενὸς ὅτου οὐ seems to be in Dem. adv. Lept. § 3 οὐ γὰρ ἔστιν ἐφ᾽ ὅτου τοῦτο οὐ πεπόνθατε τῶν πάντων (quoted by Heindorf).

62. ἁπάντων goes with τῶν ἔνδον ὄντων. It seems better to take περὶ τούτων with βούλεσθε than with τὸν λόγον ποιεῖσθαι: otherwise it is hardly possible to separate τούτων from ἁπάντων.

65. ἐνδείξασθαι καὶ καλλωπίσασθαιὅτι ἐρασταί. ὅτι depends rather on ἐνδείξασθαι than on καλλωπίσασθαι: cf. below, 327Aἐδίδασκε καὶ ἐπέπληττε τὸν μὴ καλῶς αὐλοῦντα, and ibid. B τῶν δικαίων καὶ τῶν νομίμων οὐδεὶς φθονεῖ οὐδ᾽ ἀποκρύπτεται ὥσπερ τῶν ἅλλων τεχνημάτων, Phaedo, 94D τὰ μὲν ἀπειλοῦσα, τὰ δὲ νουθετοῦσα ταῖς ἐπιθυμίαις. See also notes on 327Aand 335Ebelow.

66. εἶμεν. BT read εἴημεν, but in Plato's time the short form of the optative plural is regular: see on Apol. 22E.

τί οὖνοὐἐκαλέσαμεν. See above on 310A and for ἐπακούσωσιν note on 315A
