Perhaps that was the personal piece for Plato. Plato wrote in a form that allowed him to continue to hear in his mind's ear the beloved voice. 1 Adeimantus's criticism is made from the point of view of a Thrasymachus ( A, B) or a Callicles (Gorgias B-C or of Solon's critics (cf. my note on Solon's Trochaics to Phokos, Class. vi. pp. ff.).

The aristocratic state, and the man whose nature corresponds to it, are the objects of Plato's analyses throughout much of The Republic's books, as opposed to the other four types of states.
