Copper alloy votive miniature object. Cast model of a lower leg with a large sandalled foot at right angles to it, with two garters or straps passing round the calf of the leg. The strapping and broad sole represented on the sandal might pass muster as of Roman style, and suggest this to be a votive model of a limb. Broken across the upper calf. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410
