ὃ μέγιστον κτλ.: viz. ἐπιθυμία. The words τούτῳ ἐπωνομάσαμεν mean ‘we gave the name of ἐπιθυμία to this part,’ when we called it ἐπιθυμητικόν (ἐπιθυμητικὸν γὰρ κτλ.). Cf. (with Stallbaum) Theaet. 185 C ᾧ τὸ ἔστιν ἐπονομάζεις, Crat. 420 B and elsewhere. J. and C. wrongly understand τούτῳ as instrumental. The variant τοῦτο has little authority and is much inferior: still worse is τούτου which Madvig (Adv. Cr. I p. 431) ‘suspicatur fuisse.’ ἐπιθυμητικὸν κτλ. IV 439 D. The lowest part of soul was called φιλοχρήματον in IV 436 E et al.: see next note.
