ΤΙΤΛΟΣ:   Ζεύγος πήλινων ομοιωμάτων υποδημάτων
Category:   Terracotta
Description:   A pair, right and left; small bits of both shoes missing and restored. Some pieces burned some not. High shoes without tongues, to cover the ankles (and more); two eye-shaped holes for laces at each side. Thick soles without heels, probably rolled back and stitched to the uppers, but the stitching not indicated. A rectangular area over the instep reserved and incised with parallel verticals; the front of the shoes, above and below the eye holes, finished off with a double roll. Entirely covered outside with black glaze, except for soles and decorated area above instep. A shallow groove up the inner side, from sole to top, indicates the line of the seam; the shoes faithful copies of real leather shoes, made from one piece of leather. The ankle bones indicated by protruding knobs inside and outside.
Clay buff where not burned, gray where burned.
Cf. ArchEph (1898), pl. IV:4, p. 104.
