Ἀρχέλαον: cf. 470 d-471 d.

20 f.

εἶναι . . . γεγονότας: participial periphrasis. See Kr. 56, 3, 3, and crit. note on 510 b.

δυναστῶν: men possessed of power, not merely in monarchical and oligarchical, but also in democratical states; hence the addition of the explanation with καί. Cf. 479 a, 524 e, 526 b and see on 492 b. Below (30) in the same sense we find ἐκ τῶν δυναμένων.

22... λανγ̂γρεεκ>διά τὴν ἐξουσίαν: cf. above, 525 a. The expression very forcibly reminds us of the representations of Polus and Callicles, when praising what they conceived to be the highest happiness.

τούτοις: “to these statements,” “to this view of the matter.”
