εἰκός γε -- τοὐναντίον. Thrasymachus' view of δικαιοσύνη is like Callicles' theory of ἀρετή in Gorg. 491 E ff. esp. 492 B τρυφὴ καὶ ἀκολασία καὶ ἐλευθερία, ἐὰν ἐπικουρίαν ἔχῃ, τοῦτ᾽ ἐστὶν ἀρετή τε καὶ εὐδαιμονία. The irony is clearly marked by ὦ ἥδιστε, and Hartman should not have revived Hirschig's proposal to read <οὔκουν> εἰκός γε. ἀλλὰ τί μήν; ‘Well, what else?’ Cf. (with J. and C.) Symp. 206 E.
