Carbatina from Zugmantel

Simple carbatina after a fragmented find Zugmantel, 2nd cent. AD and later. Shoes like this with rather simple cutting patterns and construction techniques may also have been produced or reproduced by their owners. Typically they are found showing heavy use, often with large holes at the ball and the heel of the foot.
