οὔκουν κτλ. Schneider was the first to give this sentence to Adimantus, and ὀρθῶς to Socrates, “qui quum paucorum gubernationem primam illud vitium recipere persuasum haberet eamque sententiam verbis ὅρα δή etc. aperte demonstrasset, suffragante Adimanto rursus in dubium sine causa rem vocare non debebat.” Cf. 554 B. Baiter and others ought not to have reverted to the old arrangement. For οὔκουν—γε see Neil's edition of the Knights of Aristophanes p. 195. εἰς ἅ: i.e. for χρηματισμός, δημιουργία and the other purposes specified in 552 A. ἐδόκει: sc. ἄλλο τι ἢ ἀναλωτής (Schneider). This explanation, which is, I think, neater and more pointed than to supply τῶν ἀρχόντων, makes ἦν—ἀναλωτής indispensable. Herwerden was wrong in any case when he bracketed these words.
