πάντα μᾶλλον ἐπιστήμην: any- thing else rather than knowledge. The real change was not in the position of the disputants, but in the concept of virtue under examination. Socrates had maintained that the sophistic virtue could not be taught; he has proved that the true virtue can be taught. See Introd. p. 23.

ἐξελθεῖν: a rare use, go on from one thing to another. Cf. Thuc. i. 70. 3 κρατοῦντές τε τῶν ἐχθρῶν ἐπὶ πλεῖστον ἐξέρχονται when they conquer their enemies, they push their victories to the farthest extent, Soph. O. C. 981 σοῦ γ᾽ εἰς τόδ̓ ἐξελθόντος ἀνόσιον στόμα when you give vent to so unhallowed words.
