καὶ περὶ ἀφροδισίων κτλ. Cf. III 389 D ff., and (for the psychological theory of this passage) supra 602 C note ὅτι, which depends on αὐτὸς λόγος, is easy enough if we retain ὅτι in C: cf. VI 510 D οὐκοῦν καὶ ὅτι κτλ. and infra 613 D καὶ αὖ καὶ περὶ τῶν ἀδίκων ὅτι κτλ. Otherwise ὅτι becomes extremely difficult, although Stallbaum and Neukirch (in Pl. Pol. quaest. phil. I p. 49) think that αὐτὸς λόγος ἐστίν may even then be supplied. The word was accordingly suspected by Ast and bracketed by Baiter. Madvig conjectures ἔτι, and Richards would replace ὅτι τοιαῦτα by ἕτερα τοιαῦτα or οὐ τὰ αὐτά (understood interrogatively). The recurrence of ὅτι is, however, the strongest evidence in favour of its genuineness both here and above. See App. III. The pronoun τοιαῦτα takes its meaning from ἀφροδισίων etc. The note of interrogation after ἐργάζεται was added by Schneider. On ἄρδουσα see VIII 550 B note
