19. ὑποκηρυξάμενος ‘having had yourself heralded as a sophist’: compare Aeschin. in Ctes. 41 ἄλλοι δέ τινες ὑποκηρυξάμενοι τοὺς αὑτῶν οἰκέτας ἀφίεσαν ἀπελευθέρους. The force of ὑπο- is probably the same as in ὑπεῖπον: see note on 343E Notice the effect of the double σεαυτόν (both of them after a natural pause): σεαυτὸν ὑποκηρυξάμενοςσεαυτὸν ἀπέφηνας: the -αυτόν is brought out so strongly as to suggest that Protagoras is the only true Αὐτός or Master.

22. μισθὸνἄρνυσθαι: 328B where however it is not said that Protagoras was the first to take a fee. The Homeric word ἄρνυσθαι is occasionally used by prose writers in the phrase μισθὸν ἄρνυσθαι: whence μισθαρνεῖν.

25. ἐκεῖνατὰ μὲντὰ δέ: see above on 330A
