ἐκείνων πευσόμεθα κτλ. Plato does not claim to be a specialist in musical matters: cf. III 400 A. The words καὶ εἴ τι ἄλλο πρὸς τούτοις look like a general acknowledgment of obligation throughout this part of the Republic to the Pythagoreans. See App. II. ἐξῆκον κτλ. The MS reading ἀεί, οἷ gives a weightier and better meaning than οἷ ἀεί, which Richards proposes. For ἀφήκειν Eusebius (Praep. Ev. XIV 13. 5) has ἀνήκειν, also a rare word: Stephanus conjectured ἐφήκειν. ἀφήκειν is better, though rarer, than either: cf. (with Schneider) ἀφίκηται in 531 D. The reference in ἄρτι is to 529 A ff.
