It is debated whether the purses constitute a bribe, a payment for sexual favors, or a simple love-gift. Gloria Pinney (AJA 90 (1986) 218) thinks the purses contained not money, but trivial love-gifts such as astragaloi; she makes no attempt, however, to distinguish them from purses in scenes of everyday commerce, where they clearly contain money. Lyres, too, are sometimes offered as love gifts; e.g. Athens 1176, by the Geras Painter (ARV2, 287, 31). For the broader subject of love-gifts, particularly animals such as hares and cocks, see Koch-Harnack 1983.
