ἂν κτλ. οἶ ἄν was read till Schneider on the authority of Ξ; but ἄν (ΑΠ and a large majority of MSS) is quite satisfactory. “Reipublicae formae eos dicuntur sequi mores, qui in quavis civitate veluti pondere praegravantes ad se suamque regionem attraxerint reliqua” (Schneider, comparing for ῥέψαντα Hdt. VII 139). The word ῥεύσαντα (Ξ and some other MSS) is unattic (Lobeck Phryn. p. 738): Plato's form is ῥυέντα e.g. VI 495 B.

ὀρθῶς is more naturally taken with φαμέν (Jowett etc.) than with the adjectives (as Schneider). We rightly call him ‘good’ etc., because he is ὅμοιος ἀριστο-κρατίᾳ.
