βουλόμενον -- τοκῆας . βουλόμενον is not otiose after ἐθέλειν (as Hartman alleges): ‘to wish’ (βούλεσθαι) and ‘to be willing’ (ἐθέλειν) are different ideas. The same critic also rejects καί before λέγοντα “quia ea verba excusationem τοῦ ἐθέλειν humi consuescere continent”; but it is more effective to represent so gross an utterance as an additional part of the picture. For φοιτᾶν πρός cf. Lys. I 15, 19. where the meaning is the same. Herwerden should not have wished to replace the preposition by παρά. In Homer the line εἰς εὐνὴν φοιτῶντε φίλους λήθοντε τοκῆας (Il. XIV 296) is not said by Zeus, as Plato—doubtless intentionally, to increase the effect—makes it appear to be.

Ἄρεως -- δεσμόν. Od. VIII 266 ff. δεσμόν is still under the government of πο<*>εῖν.
