archaicfootperfumebottle

This small terracotta bottle dates to the mid-6th century B.C.E. and was made on the Greek island of Rhodes. It originally would have held some oil-based perfume. I’m thinking a lot about feet and ankles right now, so I just wanted to share this humorous ancient item.

Enjoy your day and watch your step!
