P. D. Mourelatos, The Route of Parmenides, pp. 53; 55-6, et al. argue for a subjectless 'is'. Owen, p. " 11 David Furley, "Notes on Parmenides," p. 9, takes this approach. He notes that Parmenides has 'εστίν' as a premise, and offers a refutation of the remaining options, to conclude "λ,είπεται ώς εστίν". Indeed, Sophist 251b-c supports the view that Plato holds Parmenides to hold a predicational monism, but does not rule out an ontological monism as well. Against the view of predicational monism, cf.

P. D. Mourelatos, "Alternatives in Interpreting Parmenides;" Alexander Nehemas, "Self-Predication and Plato's Theory of Ideas," pp. 97-9; Patricia Curd, "Parmenidean Monism;" The Legacy of Parmenides. Jonathan Barnes, "Parmenides and the Eleatic One," pp. 19-20, has a slightly different view: Parmenides is arguing, Barnes says, thus: if something is even the many things of ordinary experience: planets, Xanthippe, Socrates. But he would require that each subject have only a single predicate, strictly speaking: 'is', or 'is itself.

El. 167al-4; Int. 21a25-33] On this interpretation, Parmenides would be assuming that every affirmation contains and implies an assertion of existence, and every denial a denial of existence. On another interpretation, Parmenides takes the general strategy of making the subject ( ' S ' ) and the predicate ('P' in 'S is P') form a complex, which is then asserted to exist: 'S is P' is rendered as 'S-P is'; 'S is not P' as 'S-P is not'. 14 Then 'Socrates is not Plato' claims 'that Socrates is Plato does not exist'.
