ἀποστραφῆναι: an expressive and epigrammatic condensation for ἀπολυθῆναι στρεφόμενος. λυγιζόμενος is rightly explained by the Scholiast as στρεφόμενος, καμπτόμενος, ἀπὸ τῶν λύγων: λύγος δέ ἐστι φυτὸν ἱμαντῶδες. The corruption λογιζόμενος (found in all MSS except A and—according to Rostagno —M) was easy and almost inevitable.

παρασχεῖν δίκην. The same phrase appears in Eur. Hipp. 49, 50, and Herwerden should not have proposed ὑποσχεῖν. Plato's view in the Gorgias is that the guilty should denounce themselves to the judge and be cured by suffering punishment: see II 380 B note
