46. ἔφην: 335C

Καλλίᾳ τῷ καλῷ: see on 336Babove. For καλῷ cf. Symp. 174A ταῦτα δὴ ἐκαλλωπισάμην ἵνα καλὸς παρὰ καλὸν (viz. Agathon) ἴω. Sauppe reminds us of the use of καλός on vases, and also cites Ar. Ach. 143 ἐν τοῖσι τοίχοις ἔγραφ᾽ Ἀθηναῖοι καλοί (of Sitalces) and the famous Κριτίᾳ τοῦτ᾽ ἔστω τῷ καλῷ of the dying Theramenes (Xen. Hell. II. 3. 56).
