33. χορῷ. The tragic chorus consisted of 15 χορευταί, arranged in 3 rows (στοῖχοι) of 5 each, the leader (κορυφαῖος) being in the middle of the first. So here Protagoras occupies the middle of a row of 7. With the metaphor cf. Theaet. 173B τοὺςτοῦ ἡμετέρου χοροῦ and ibid. C λέγωμεν δὴπερὶ τῶν κορυφαίων; Phaedr. 246E ff.

34. ηὐλαβοῦντο. The MSS. have εὐλαβοῦντο, but in the classic period εὐ- (and εἰ-) were always augmented in the past tenses, while after 300 B.C. ηὐ- does not appear on inscriptions. See Meisterhans, Gr. der Att. Inschr.2, p. 136.
