οἷον εἰκὸς should be taken with what follows: cf. IV 419 A note

φθεγγομένους merely prepares the way for 515 B εἰ καὶ ἠχὼ κτλ., and beyond this, it has, I think, no meaning. It certainly does not “prepare for the science of harmonics” (as J. and C. hold): see 532 B note and App. I.

τῶν παραφερόντων (bracketed by Baiter) is natural enough, παρὰ τοῦτο τὸ τειχίον φέροντας being too distant to cause difficulty.
