εἰ καὶ κτλ.: ‘if men also who are ignorant of truth’ etc. καί sc. like μὴ ἔμπειρος τοῦ ἀληθινῶς ἄνω τε ὄντος κτλ. in our simile. Three deterioris notae MSS have εἰ καὶ οἱ ἄπειροι, and Hermann conjectures οἱ for καί: but cf. the use of εἰ καί in X 597 A. The article is not necessary, and ought not to be introduced without better MS authority.
