οὐδ᾽ αὖ has been needlessly doubted by Richter (Fl. Jahrb. 1867 p. 142), who suggests οὐδέν. The words ἀδικῶνποιοῖ correspond to the conduct of Uranus and Cronus towards their children: οὐδ᾽ αὖτρόπῳ to Cronus' treatment of Uranus, and Zeus' of Cronus. Cf Euthyph. 5 E—6 A. The Euthyphro presents so many parallels to § 378 that some have—erroneously, no doubt—supposed it to be a spurious elaboration of that section: see my edition of the dialogue p. xxix.
