This colossal marble foot, found at the corner of Via del Pie'di Marmo and Via San Stefano del Cacco, probably came from the ancient Temple of Isis which once stood near Santa Maria sopra Minerva. The type of sandal being worn on the foot suggests it belonged to a male cult statue, perhaps Isis' consort Serapis.
