[777] εὖ πεπυκασμένα: well covered (sc. “πέπλοις”, cf. “δίφροι ... ἀμφὶ δὲ πέπλοι πέπτανται Ε” 193 ff., 8.441), away from the dust.

κεῖτο: lay. When chariots were out of use, their wheels were sometimes removed, cf. 5.722. But “κεῖμαι” is often perf. pass. of “τίθημι. — ἀνάκτων”: of the masters (const. with “ἅρματα”); Achilles and his lieutenants (see on v. 685). The “λαοί” did not fight “ἀφ̓ ἵππων”.
