More Asyndetic Privative Adjectives in the Greek Anthology

There is a pair of asyndetic privative adjectives in the Greek Anthology, at 1.94.2:
ἐς δόμον ἀχράντοιο ἀμωμήτοιο γυναικὸς
W.R. Paton's translation, by the addition of a conjunction, obscures the asyndeton:
to the house of the immaculate and blameless woman
