Nike Tying Her Sandal (Sandalbinder)
Artist: Kallimachos (active )
The sculpture represented by this cast was originally located on a parapet wall that surrounded the Temple of Athena Nike on three sides of the bastion just to the right of the Propylaia. As visitors in antiquity arrived at the steps to the Acropolis, they would have seen this Nike facing outward on the marble parapet, along with several other examples of Nike approaching a seated Athena.
