ἐπαγγελλόμενος: professing to teach, a technical expression.

πράττοιτο: for the opt., see on i.1.13, and G. 1502, 2 (2), last example but one; H. 932, 2.

μή, μὴ ἕξοι: we should expect μὴ οὐχ ἕξοι, acc. to the rule (G. 1364; H. 887), but ‘after μή had come to be felt as a conjunction, and its origin was forgotten, the chief objection to μή, μή was probably in the sound, and we find a few cases of it where the two particles are so far apart that the repetition is not offensive’ GMT. 306 (where the sent. of the text is cited). Another instance of this rare usage is found in Thuc. ii. 13.
