[170] ἑστεῶτα: Odysseus was not carried along by the rout, and the agora was nearest his own ships (see on 1.54). This partic. has this form in the first foot, but is “ἑσταότα” in the second foot of the verse.

μελαίνης: cf. 1.300; the ships of Odysseus are called “μιλτοπάρῃοι” (vermilion-cheeked) v. 637.
