μὴ οὐχί: because αἰσχρόν ἐστι, ἄνοιά ἐστι, αἰσχύνομαι are regarded as neg. expressions. See GMT. 95, 2, N. 1, Rem.—As a teacher of wisdom and virtue, Protagoras must maintain their value; thus Socrates, by associating Protagoras with himself in combating the vulgar view, involves him also in the final conclusion, that all virtue is wisdom.

γέγων: connected, as is freq. the partic. in conversation, with a verb used by the previous speaker. Here sc. φῄς, from φημί implied in the words of Protagoras.
