στραγγευομένῳ. See cr. n. στρατευομένῳ could only be understood (with Stallbaum, who retains it, and Huber zu den Plat. Gleichnissen p. 10) as half-jocular for ‘de re militari disputanti.’ Such a usage is possible in itself (see on ἀποτίνουσι II 363 C); but ὤκνουν τε καὶ ἐδεδοίκη and μὴ διάτριβε (in B) are strongly in favour of στραγγευομένῳ. The same corruption—due to confusion of γ and τ, combined with lipography—occurs in the MSS of Ar. Ach. 126, as well as in Hesychius (στρατεύομαι: διατρίβω) and elsewhere: see Blaydes on Ar. l.c.

τὼ δύο κύματε. See 457 B, C. The first was ὡς δεῖ κοινῇ πάντα ἐπιτηδεύειν τούς τε φύλακας καὶ τὰς φυλακίδας; the second community of wives and children.

λέγειν λόγον τε. J. and C. read λόγον λέγειν τε with Ξ and Μ; but the other reading has far more authority, and is perhaps exquisitius. Cf. 452 A.
