δοξάζει. The subject is δόξα rather than δοξάζων, in spite of δοξάζων above. δόξα was the subject of the verb where the two stages of the argument began (478 A ταὐτόν sc. δόξα δοξάζει and 478 B ἆρ᾽ οὖν τὸ μὴ ὂν δοξάζει), and ought to be so in the conclusion also.

σαφηνείᾳ -- ἀσαφείᾳ. The full significance of these words does not appear till VI 508 D ff., where the relation between Light and Truth is explained. See note ad loc. and VI 511 C note

ἐντὸς δ᾽ ἀμφοῖν. Hartman (with Ast) prefers ἐντὸς δὴ ἀμφοῖν. It is much better to regard the expression as a step in the argument, leading to the conclusion μεταξὺ ἄρα κτλ.
