καὶ δὴ καί: see on 345 e.

ὅς γε: see on 339 d.

σὺ δὲ καὶ αὐτός: free resumption of οὐ μόνον αὐτὸς κτἑ. above. Socrates ironically uses οἴει . . . εἶναι, after the manner of Protagoras, as quite equivalent to εἶ.—

ποιεῖν: cf. 318 a, 319 a, 328 b.

πεπίστευκας: the perf. here has its true force, expressing the action as complete while still efficient in its result; “you have such confidence in yourself.” Cf. 2 Ep. ad Tim. i. 12 οἶδα γὰρ πεπίστευκα, where however the verb has a stronger meaning.

ἄλλων: cf. 316 d. καί belongs to the whole sentence.
