ἑτέρους=μὴ τοὺς αὐτούς depends on ὀνομάζοντας understood. D. and V. make ἕλκοντα govern γυναῖκα— ἑτέρους, as Stallbaum formerly did, but Plato could not have said anything so ludicrous. ὁμοπαθεῖς: ‘simultaneously affected by’ D. and V. ὁμοιοπαθής (Ast) would mean ‘of like passions with.’ ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν with οἰχήσεται=‘almost have disappeared,’ “so gut wie verschwunden sein” (Schneider): see on I 341 B. The English translators either omit or misinterpret the phrase. Aristophanes furnishes several pretty close parallels to Plato's reasoning here: cf. Eccl. 560—610 and especially 657 (ἀλλ᾽ οὐδὲ δίκαι πρῶτον ἔσονται）—672. See Chiappelli Riv. di Filol. XI pp. 212 ff. and on the whole subject App. I.
