8. ἀλλὰ δή like at enim introduces a possible objection: see on Crito, 54A. The fuller form of the comparative (βελτίονα and the like) is less common in Plato than the contracted.

10. ὥστε. Heindorf cites (inter alia) Phaedr. 269D τὸ μὲν δύνασθαι, Φαῖδρε, ὥστε ἀγωνιστὴν τέλεον γενέσθαι. The insertion of ὥστε with the usual infinitive after ἀδύνατον increases the emphasis of ἀδύνατον by making it appear more than a mere auxiliary notion. Badham's conjecture ἀδύνατον ὂν ὑμῖν ἴστε deserves mention for its ingenuity. For Πρωταγόρου see above, note on 318D

13. τό γ᾽ ἐμὸν οὐδὲν διαφέρει. Gorg. 458D τό γ᾽ ἐμὸν οὐδὲν κωλύει. τό γ᾽ ἐμόν is frequent in Plato for quantum ad me attinet.

16. εἰ μὴ βούλεται. For the asyndeton see above on 330A
