[45] ὤμοισιν: dat. of place, see § 3 d.

ἀμφηρεφέα: i.e. closed both above and below as it hung on the shoulder, see on 2.389. The explanation of the lengthened ultima is uncertain. Apollo as god of the bow always carries bow and quiver, cf. his words “σύνηθες ἀεὶ ταῦτα βαστάζειν ἐμοί” Eur. Alc. 40; so he is represented in works of art.
