Pulchra need be no more than an ornamental epithet: but its position seems to show that the beauty of the gift is considered to be appropriate to the beauty of the goddess. ‘Suum munus’ like “Phoebo sua semper apud me Munera” E. 3. 62, though there is not the notion here of restoring to the goddess her own. ‘Ferre instituit’ like “mandat fieri sibi talia Daphnis” E. 5. 41.
