Description:   Shoes similar to P 19249 (ΟΟ 616), but somewhat larger and more fragmentary; all the fragments badly burned. Two pairs of triangular lace holes on each shoe; the decorated area (incised and reserved) over the instep larger and rounded at the bottom; the seam not indicated on the inner sides; at the level of the upper lace holes a reserved zone decorated with two lines around the back below the top. Swellings for ankle bones set too far forward.
ADDENDA P 19249: 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.
