ff. On Plato's treatment of ἀριθμητική—i.e. the Science of Number, not Arithmetic in the modern sense of the word: see on 525 A—reference may be made to Blass de Platone mathematico (Bonnae 1861), Cantor Gesch. d. Mathem. pp. 183 ff., and especially Rothlauf's excellent monograph Die Mathem. z. Platons Zeit u. s. Beziehungen zu ihr (Jena 1878) pp. 19—49. See also App. II.

ποτέρων is intrinsically better than πότερον, which has considerable MS authority (including Α^{1}, Ξ and Μ), and is read by Hermann and Baiter. Cf. τῶν ἀγωγῶν ἂν εἴη κτλ. 525 A. For the error see Introd. § 5.
