Bourgie Claude Montana deadly-to-the-touch as dry ice-white fur paired with fishnet top, rosary, and that cranial-shattering, steady-as-a-surgeon’s-hand eye make-up? So many [stiletto] clickity-clacks ahead of the standard dark-sider set; 33 years later, and fucks are still scrambling to catch up…♥

It was common practice in antiquity to dedicate representations of afflicted parts at a healing shrine, either as an offering of thanks for a cure or in hope of one. The inscription on this marble relief reads: Ἀσκληπίῳ καὶ Ὑγ(ι)είᾳ εὐχαριστήριον, and can be translated as ‘Tyche [dedicated this] to Asklepios and Hygieia as a thank offering’. Hygieia was the female companion of Asklepios, the god of medicine and son of Apollo, and is often represented with him. The shape of the Greek letter ‘S’ after the first ‘A’ allows us to date the relief to the Roman period.
The relief was found in 1828 in the same sanctuary on Mílos as a colossal marble head of Asklepios himself. A round votive altar was also found, inscribed with a dedication to Asklepios and Hygieia by a priest named Claudius Gallinus.
2nd century AD, found in the Shrine of Asklepios on the Island of Milos, Aegean Sea
