ἵνα χρόνος κτλ. For the touchstone of time, cp. Simon. fr. 175 οὐκ ἔστιν μείζων βάσανος χρόνου οὐδενὸς ἔργου | ὃς καὶ ὑπὸ στέρνοις ἀνδρὸς ἔδειξε νόον: Soph. O. T. 614χρόνος δίκαιον ἄνδρα δείκνυσιν μόνος” : Eur. Hippol. 1051 μηνυτὴν χρόνον. On the signif. of βάσανος, see Vahlen Op. Acad. II. 7 ff.: cp. Gorg. 486 D, Rep. 413 E; Clem. Al. Strom. I. 291 D.

τὸ ὑπὸ χρημάτων...ἁλῶναι. Cp. 185 A πλούτου ἕνεκα χαρισάμενος: 216 D μέλει αὐτῷ οὐδὲν...εἴ τις πλούσιος: Ar. Plut. 153 ff. καὶ τούς γε παῖδας...δρᾶν... τἀργυρίου χάριν. As against the deletion of the second αἰσχρόν by Hirschig, see the parallels collected by Vahlen Op. Acad. II. 359. For πολιτ. δυνάμεων, cp. Xen. Mem. IV. 2. 35; this may be a hit at Alcibiades, cp. 216 B.
