πρὸς λόγου: to the advantage of our discourse. But little different from πρὸς λόγον. Cf. Prot. 351 e ἐὰν πρὸς λόγον δοκῇ εἶναι τὸ σκέμμα.— τόδε: draws the attention in advance to the series of closely interconnected questions, introduced by ἆρα, which, by their very intimate relation one to another, oppose, with a certain importunity, Gorgias' continual wandering and vagueness, and also, by their delicate allusion to the somewhat extravagant expression used above (455 d), have a decidedly ironical tinge, which is rendered more appar ent by the doubtful οἶμαι of Gorgias' answer.

ἆρα: see on 476 a.
