οὕτως: in this strain.

Ἱππίαν: Hippias of Elis was one of the most famous sophists of his day, and was very popular as a teacher of rhetoric, although his charges were as high as those of Protagoras (see on i.2.5). He is a frequent figure in the Platonic dialogues, where he appears to better advantage than here.

διὰ χρόνου: as in ii. 8. 1.

παρεγένετο: happened upon.

διδάξασθαί τινα: to have any one trained. For the causative mid., see G. 1245; H. 815.

δικαίους: applied to persons or things that are as they should be (comme il faut); and especially appropriate here, the discussion being on δικαιοσύνη. Cf. οὔτε γὰρ ἅρμα γένοιτ᾽ ἂν δίκαιον ἀδίκων (ἵππων) συνεζευγμένων Cyr. ii. 2. 26.

τῶν διδαξόντων: const. like τῶν ἀπολυσόντων ii. 1. 5.
