Ἡσίοδον. OD. 40.

μενεῖ ἐπί: ‘will remain true to,’ as in VI 496 B.

συγχωρεῖς is followed first by the accusative κοινωνίαν and afterwards by the accusative with infinitive κατά τε πόλινἄῤῥεν (J. and C.). Ast desired to cancel καί before παίδων, and is commended for this by Hartman, who remarks “quasi unquam παῖδες gigni possint sine mulieris et viri κοινωνίᾳ!” “Nodum in scirpo,” as Schneider caustically observes. Plato is speaking of κοινωνία περὶ παίδων not between one woman and one man, but between several women and several men (τῶν γυναικῶν τοῖς ἀνδράσι). The children are common to all the guardians of either sex.
