47. ταῦτα: i.e. τὰ ἡδέα.

51. ὅτε: the notion of time readily passes into that of cause, as in quoniam and cum.

52. φαίνεται ὑμῖν κτλ. Two examples are given: (1) size— of which παχέα and φωναὶ μεγάλαι (according to the Greek and Roman way of viewing sound) are special varieties, (2) number, i.e. τὰ πολλά. The specific varieties παχέα and φωναὶ μεγάλαι are not dealt with in the sequel. With what follows compare (besides Rep. X. 602D cited above) Euthyphr. 7B ff. and Alc. I, 126C ff., and with the present passage Phileb. 42A and Rep. VII. 523C524C. The resolution by the intellect of such contradictory sense-perceptions is made the basis of Plato's scheme of higher education in the Republic.

55. αἱ ἴσαι is Heindorf's correction for ἴσαι.
