ἄλλα τῶν δικαίων: “something different from righteousness.” For the gen. of distinction, see on ὁδοῦ ii. 3. 16.

σχολῇ: as in iii. 14. 3.—καὶ τοῖς θεοῖς κτλ.: correlative to the thought of 18, which is here taken up and extended. In 18, men agree that τὸ αὐτὸ νόμιμόν τε καὶ δίκαιόν ἐστι, and here the gods too hold the same opinion.

τοὺς πλησιάζοντας: i.e. not only Hippias, but the circle of Socrates's friends, who eagerly listened to this and similar discussions.
