ἤδη στερεώτερον: ‘still more stubborn.’ στερέος is like σκληρός in Theaet. 155 E σκληροὺςκαὶ ἀντιτύπους ἀνθρώπους, but stronger, suggesting castiron hardness and inflexibility.

ῥᾴδιον. See cr. n. Schneider refers to Laws 757 B τὴν δὲ ἀληθεστάτην καὶ ἀρίστην ἰσότητα οὐκέτι ῥᾴδιον παντὶ ἰδεῖν. ῥᾷον is not (I think) possible here: and a scribe might easily omit ΙΔ in ΡΑΙΔΙΟΝ. Cf. Introd. § 5.

εἰ γὰρ κτλ. Gorg. 483 C νόμῳ μὲν τοῦτο ἄδικον καὶ αἰσχρὸν λέγεται, τὸ πλέον ζητεῖν ἔχειν τῶν πολλῶν, καὶ ἀδικεῖν αὐτὸ καλοῦσιν. Dümmler (Zur Comp. d. Pl. St. p. 13) goes so far as to assert that ὥσπερ ἄλλοι τινές is an express reference to Polus in the Gorgias; but nothing is gained by so hazardous a conjecture.
