τῆς ἰατρικῆς. Eryx. speaks, as a member of the Asclepiad guild, of “our art”: for his glorification of “the art,” see also 176 D, 196 A, and Agathon's allusion in 196 D. Cp. Theaet. 161 E τὸ δὲ δὴ ἐμόν τε καὶ τῆς ἐμῆς τέχνης τῆς μαιευτικῆς κτλ., where also Naber excises τῆς μ. (cp. Vahlen Op. Ac. II. 273).
