οὕτω δὴ κτλ. In this clause the method of action permissible to παιδικά is presented as parallel to that permissible to ἐρασταί. That there is some corruption in the text is indicated by the divergence of the MSS. in regard to the words after ἄλλη: but of the many emendations suggested (see crit. n.) none is convincing. Perhaps the safest plan is to bracket μῶν...ἑκούσιος, as an adscript meant to suggest a subject for λείπεται, and to supply ὁδός as subject from the preceding context.

σοφίαν...μέρος ἀρετῆς. Cp. Protag. 329 E, Rep. 427 E (with Adam's n.): “the nearest approach to the doctrine before Plato is in Xen. Mem. III. 9. 1—5.” How many μέρη ἀρετῆς are assumed here by Pausanias is, of course, left indefinite. (See also 196 B n.)
