ὥσπερ σὺ λέγεις κτἑ.: Protagoras requests that now also they follow the method for which Socrates has a preference, cf. 348 c, 349 e. σκέμμα is that which is reached by the σκοπεῖσθαι.

πρὸς λόγον: reasonable, in accordance with fact. Cf. 343 d, 344 a, Phil. 33 c καὶ εἰσαῦθις ἐπισκεψώμεθα, ἐὰν πρὸς λόγον τι . With πρὸς λόγον, cf. κατὰ λόγον, μετὰ λόγον.—The investigation properly conducted is to reach the result that the agreeable and the good appear as one and the same thing, as is indicated by the position of μέν, δέ.

εἰ δὲ μή: sc. πρὸς λόγον δοκῇ εἶναι κτἑ.

δίκαιος: sc. εἶ, a rare ellipsis. Cf. Theaet. 143 d σοὶ δὴ οὐκ ὀλίγιστοι πλησιάζουσι (by no means a few resort to you), καὶ δικαίως: ἄξιος γάρ, Gorg. 487 d καὶ μὴν ὅτι γε οἷος παρρησιάζεσθαι (to speak frankly), αὐτός τε φῂς καὶ λόγος ὁμολογεῖ σοι. See on 319 b, l. 6.
