καλόν γε -- καθαρμόν. Cf. VII 540 E note The famous anecdote of Thrasybulus and Periander (Hdt. V 92: cf. Arist. Pol. Γ 13. 1284^{a} 26 ff., E 10. 1311^{a} 20 ff., also Eur. Suppl. 445—449, where the poet borrows his imagery from the same story) is one instance out of many in Greek history: see Greenidge Gk Const. H. pp. 31 ff.

ἀνάγκη: sc. ἐστιν. J. and C. strangely say that “ἀνάγκη is the subject of ἔοικε.” For αὐτῷ ἀνάγκη cf. 568 E and IX 579 A. On the force of ἀνάγκη here and just below see 565 C, 566 A notes
