ἐγὼ εὖ οἶδ᾽ ὅτι κτἑ.: here again Protagoras leaves it for Socrates to refute this interpretation by citing other words from the poem. See below.

σοῦ: for the prolepsis, see on 313 b, l. 19.

δοκεῖν: redundant, as though οἶμαι had not preceded, although it depends upon the latter. Cf. Soph. 225 d δοκῶ μὴν τό γε ἀμελὲς τῶν οἰκείων (the neglect of one's own affairs) γιγνόμενον καλεῖσθαι κατὰ γνώμην τὴν ἐμὴν οὐχ ἕτερον ἀδολεσχικοῦ (nothing else than garrulity); in Parm. 165 c the expression ταὐτὸν φαίνεσθαι πεπονθέναι depends upon the preceding δόξει, Xen. Hell. vii. 4. 35 ἐνόμιζον τῷ θεῷ οἴεσθαι μᾶλλον ἂν οὕτω χαρίζεσθαι they thought they would thus the rather please the god.
