[132] αὐτή: “” (Athena) is still the subject, but this subj. is made prominent in contrast with the more negative act of 130.

ὅθι: thither where.

ζωστῆρος: a leather belt, faced with metal, which bound the cuirass. The clasps (“ὀχῆες”) or buckles seem to have been at the side, where both front and back plates of the cuirass met. “ζώνη” is a woman's girdle.

133 = Od. 3.415.—“σύνεχον [συνεῖχον]”: joined, met. Intrans., cf. “γ 478. ἔχω” and its compounds are often intrans. in Attic, but rarely in Homer.

διπλόος κτλ.: i.e. the arrow was met by the double cuirass, since it hit where the front and back pieces met and overlapped.
