Vetting Status: high
A sort of ornament, which Empedocles had on his feet. For he had a golden wreath on his head and bronze amyklai[1] on his feet and Delphic fillets in his hands; and thus he went from city to city, wanting to hold his own reputation like that of a god. By night he cast himself into the craters of the fiery Etna,[2] but his sandal was thrown back up. He was called Kolusanemas ["wind-restrainer"], because he banished the many winds which were set against Akragas by placing hides of asses around the city.
