[373] πύργῳ: i.e. that tower at the Scaean Gate whence Andromache could look forth toward the Achaean camp and upon the plain with the opposing armies.—Andromache had set out for the Tower, apparently, after Hector reached the city, and while he was at the home of Priam or of Paris. So she had missed meeting her husband. But she learned at the Tower that Hector was in the city, and hastened home to greet him.
