34. ὀλίγον δὲ τοῦ ποιήματος εἰς τὸ πρόσθεν: these words as well as προϊόντος τοῦ ᾁσματος in 339Care in favour of the supposition that some verses are wanting between ἄνευ ψόγου τετυγμένον and οὐδέ μοι ἐμμελέως: see Appendix I, pp. 213-14.

40. τὸ πρότερον: adverbial.

41. θόρυβον παρέσχεν καὶ ἔπαινον. θόρυβος denotes only ‘noise’, ‘tumult’ (cf. Rep. VI. 492C θόρυβοντοῦ ψόγου καὶ ἐπαίνου): καὶ ἔπαινον is needed to show that the noise was favourable. So above, 334Cἀνεθορύβησαν ὡς εὖ λέγοι. With παρέχειν in this sense cf. the phrase παρέχειν γέλωτα in Gorg. 473E and Theaet. 174C.
