χάριτος, a grace shown to her, a matter for thankfulness.

ἐπόρισεν is the best correction of the corrupt “ἐπόρσεν” or “ἐπῶρσεν”. It is true that “πορίζω” has not elsewhere the special sense of “πορεύω”, ‘to convey,’ ‘bring’: but how easily a poet might transfer that sense to it, is suggested by the similar case of “πορεῖν” in O. C. 1457, (“πῶς ἄν τις”) “δεῦρο Θησέα πόροι”, ‘fetch him hither.’
