εἴτε παραδεξόμεθα κτλ. Krohn (Pl. St. p. 13) declares this passage to be inconsistent with II 373 B, where ὑποκριταί, χορευταί, ἐργολάβοι are admitted. He forgets or ignores the fact that in § 373 Plato is describing the τρυφῶσα πόλις, which he is now engaged in ‘purging’ (399 E). See II 372 D note

ἴσως δὲ -- τούτων. In this remark J. and C. find “an anticipation of the condemnation of epic poetry in Book X.” I cannot see that it does more than prepare the way for ἀλλ᾽ ὅπῃ ἂνἰτέον. See on X 595 A.
