20. διέξοδοι means finished narratives or descriptions (cf. λόγῳ διεξελθών and διεξιέναι in 320C. It is to be noted that so far we have not got beyond ποίησις ψιλή (i.e. unaccompanied by music): lyric poetry begins to be studied when the lyre has been learnt (l. 25).

23. ἕτερα τοιαῦτα: for the phrase see on Apol. 26A. The accusative (internal) depends on ἐπιμελοῦνται as in 325Cἐπιμελοῦνται πᾶσαν ἐπιμέλειαν and Laws, VII. 812E ἀλλὰ ταῦτα μὲν παιδευτὴς ἐπιμελείσθω: the whole phrase is equivalent to ἑτέραν τοιαύτην σωφροσύνης τε ἐπιμέλειαν ποιοῦνται. Verbs taking the external object in the genitive or dative are not precluded from taking the internal object in the accusative.
