Gossrau states, but without citing his authority, that Anchises was honoured in Arcadia and elsewhere as the patron of horses. If this is so, Virg. may have alluded to it here, as perhaps in 3. 470, 537. The separation of aurea from frena can hardly be ascribed to any other cause than poetical variety and metrical convenience, though there may be some force in the epithet in its present position as showing the store which Pallas set by the gift. Gossrau is wrong in saying that frena bina aurea would have been non satis Latinum: but it is true nevertheless that the Augustan poets seem generally to avoid connecting an epithet with a substantive that has any other adjunct. See on G. 2. 147.
