Terracotta guttus (flask with handle and spout). Late Classical, 4th cent BCE. South Italian, Campanian. The left foot wears a sandal with a thick sole—perhaps that of an actor? The functional features of the object include the strainer at the top, a small spout in the form of a lion's head, and the vertical ring handle. Vases in the form of sandaled feet occur in Greek art at all periods and in all areas.
