42. ἀπέδωκε τούτῳ, i.e. Pericles to Alcibiades. Pericles is humorously represented as restoring his ward in despair to the very man who was suspected of corrupting him: and Alcibiades is again appeased.

45. οὔτε τῶν ἀλλοτρίων. See Gorg. 515C ff., where it is argued that Pericles, Cimon and Miltiades made none of their fellow-citizens better.

48. κάμπτομαι. Stallbaum quotes Thuc. III. 58. I καίτοι ἀξιοῦμέν γεκαμφθῆναι ὑμᾶς καὶ μεταγνῶναι.

49. πολλῶν μὲντὰ δὲ αὐτὸν ἐξηυρηκέναι. It is implied that Protagoras' originality is not equal to his industry. The MSS. have ἐξευρηκέναι, but in the perfect as in past tenses generally initial ευ became ηυ: see on 315Babove.
