previous next
καὶ περὶ ἄλλο: indefinite and merely preparatory.

ἀσκέπτως ἔχων: like ἀμελῶν or ὀλιγωρῶν. Cf. above, b.

συγκατατίθεσαι: reminds again of voting (as above, 500 a σύμψηφος). It is regularly used without an obj. Here we must consider δόξαν as taking the place of the word ψῆφον, to be construed with this verb after the analogy of the regular phrase θέσθαι ψῆφον. See Thompson. συγκατατίθεσθαι has also the meaning “lay aside for future use.”

οὐκ ἔγωγε κτἑ.: an emphatic assent (see on 453 d). But Callicles weakens it by the addition of ἵνα . . . χαρίσωμαι, referring to 497 b, c.
