The discovery took place near the famous place “Dexamini”, which served as a water source for the ancient inhabitants, once built by Peisistratos (approx. 550 BC) and rebuilt by the roman emperor Hadrian.

The paw obviously belonged to a middle sized dog. It´s unclear what its intention have been, whether it ran to the ancient water source or was fed by its owner. Also it is not clear whether this paw belonged to a breed or a mongrel.

The research continues, and new information will be updated.
