> adversative, as is the «{δέ}» at the beginning of the sentence opening 
> the second paragraph. This is in line with the careful disposition of 
> the {\emph cola} in the whole introduction: independent, principal 
> clauses are always introduced by conjunctive «{δέ}», and inside them 
> the subclauses in contraposition are regularly marked by the canonical 
> «{μέν \dots δέ}». Moreover, every «{μέν}» is answered by a «{δέ}». The 
> only exception is the «{μέν}» in this sentence [lines 23–24]: a clause 
> such as «{οἱ δὲ ἐπιμερεῖϲ οὔ}» (\quote{whereas epimeric do not}) is 
> surely missing due to scribal mistake. I regard the correction as 
> certain, given the strictly analogous structure of the immediately
