μεταβαλὼν. Here the participle “adverbii partes agit,” cp. Gorg. 480 E, Phileb. 51 A. For the ellipse, cp. 204 D, 199 E. φέρε, ὦ Σ., ορα. Most editors bracket the MSS.' ἐρᾷ: Stallb., after Winckelmann, retains it with the punctuation ἐρᾷ ὁ ἐρῶν τῶν ἀγαθῶν: τί ἐρᾷ;—a mode of expression which is “vehementius quam ut aptum videri possit huic loco” (Rettig). Rückert defends the Aldine reading ἐρῶ as a permissible superfluity “in familiari sermone.” I suspect that here, as above, we should read ὅρα: cp. ὅρα τί ποιεῖς 189 A; Rep. 596 C; Crat. 385 D φέρε...εἰπέ.
