In this sentence, is "då" referring to a point in time? As in, "I ate at 3 PM" "What had you eaten then?"

Or is it an interjection, as in "I had eaten already" "what had you eaten, then?"

It could actually be both, but I’m pretty sure it refers to the former.

Shouldn't "what had you eaten in that case" be accepted? or am i understanding the sentence wrong?
