μιμήσεται. See cr. n. The choice of reading lies between this and Madvig's emendation <μιμήσεται > διηγήσεται. In favour of μιμήσεται is μᾶλλον, which correlates with ὅσῳ ἂν φαυλότερος . The corruption doubtless arose from a misinterpretation of μᾶλλον. Thinking that an clause was needed to explain it, a scribe added διηγήσεται in the margin, and διηγήσεται was afterwards taken as a variant and ousted μιμήσεται. These arguments, which are Hartman's, seem to me conclusive in favour of μιμήσεται, which Schneider first restored.

σπουδῇ τε καὶ ἐναντίον πολλῶν: like the professional dramatist or actor.

τροχιλιῶν κτλ. Cf. supra 396 B note
