τι -- τὸ μὲν -- τὸ δέ. For the subdivision of τις cf. V 463 B, VIII 560 A, Gorg. 499 C. Other examples of ‘partitive apposition’ are V 461 D, 477 C, VIII 552 C: cf. also VIII 556 B, IX 592 A, X 618 E. τὸ κρείττω αὑτοῦ: sc. φαίνεταί μοι τοῦτο λέγειν. The expression κρείττω αὑτοῦ is the subject, and τοῦτο the object. τόν for τό (see cr. n.) is indefensible. See also on τοῦτο δέ below. πλήθους τοῦ χείρονος. II 379 C note τοῦτο δὲ -- διακείμενον . τοῦτο is the object of ψέγειν, whose subject is still strictly speaking τὸ κρείττω αὑτοῦ or (which is the same thing) οὗτος ὁ λόγος. In ψέγειν and καλεῖν the λόγος is halfpersonified: ‘this the phrase censures as something disgraceful, and calls the man who is in this condition a slave to himself and intemperate.’ For the recapitulatory τοῦτο δέ cf. Ap. 28 E with my note ad loc. Hartman's τοῦτο δή is an unhappy suggestion.
