[112] καὶ ... κατέθηκε: cf. “Ω 271, ι 329, Ζ” 473.

καί: returns to the story of 105.

τό: sc. “τόξον”. See on “πᾶν” 111.

κατέθηκε: Pandarus laid the bow down, since he wanted to take an arrow from his quiver.

τανυσσάμενος: when he had strung it.—“ποτὶ γαίῃ ἀγκλίνας [ἀνακλίνας]”: subord. to “τανυσσάμενος”. To string the bow required much exertion, and one end of the bow (naturally) was rested on the ground.
