μετεωροσκόπον κτλ. A frequent taunt: cf. e.g. Pol. 299 B μετεωρολόγον, ἀδολέσχην τινὰ σοφιστήν, Phaedr. 270 A, Parm. 135 D, Ap. 18 B, Isocrates adv. Soph. 8, Antid. 262, and Ar. Clouds 228, 1480 with Blaydes' note. The implication is that μετεωροσκόπος is blind to τὰ ἐν ποσίν: cf. Theaet. 174 A. Cobet revives Porson's conjecture μετεωροκόπον (after μετεωροκοπεῖς in Ar. Peace 92), but the text is perfectly good: cf. μετεωρολέσχας in 489 C.
