Footprints carved in marble. The object was found in the Roman amphitheater in Italica (province of Sevilla, Spain).
There are more finds of this type. Those are referred as – plantae pedum. As it turns out, the Romans deposited these types of objects as gifts to deities – it was suggested that those were footprints of deities. It was supposed to be a symbol of two guardian deities – Itus and Reditus – who were responsible for reaching the destination successfully and a happy return from the journey.
For example, such votive gifts were offered to Nemesis – the goddess of revenge and justice – who was considered the patron of gladiators. Another object of this type was dedicated to Isis and deposited in a theater in the same city.
A similar object was found in Rome. Below, the object dated to the 3rd century CE. Currently, it is in the Capitoline Museums.
