[205] τόξοισιν πίσυνος: cf. “ἀλκὶ πεποιθώς 299, ἱπποσύνῃ πεποιθώς Δ 303. — ἄρα”: “as I see now.” Pandarus judges from his failures.

οὐκ ἔμελλον: were not fated. The poet may use the plural verb, not only with a neut. subj., but where the subj. (“τόξα”) refers to but one thing (“τόξον”), though the ‘bow and arrows’ may be grouped together.
