ἀκούσαις -- ἐλεύθερος rings like an echo from some of the panegyrists of Athens: cf. Eur. Ion 669—675 with Menex. 239 A ff. and Thuc. II 37. 2.

ἔχει -- κάλλιστον (sc. δημοκρατουμένη πόλις)=‘is its fairest possession,’ not ‘it has this in the highest perfection’ (as suggested in J. and C.).

προστατούντων. See on 565 C.
