Decoration The piece consists of half of a foot, which is broken about halfway down its length. The half remaining includes all five toes, with slightly curling little toes and a rather stumpy big toe. The foot sits upon a thick sandal. Under this is a chunk of unworked marble, presumably part of the original base of the statue, which takes up about the same amount of mass as the carved foot does. This underside is rough and worn. The break halfway through the foot in fairly clean, leaving a rough, but planar surface.
Inscriptions
Condition Single fragment preserving some of a foot. The marble is rough, and there are a number of brown dirt stains, especially around the big toe, and the side opposite to the toes, where the foot has been broken off.
