[1] Also karba/tinai. 'Brogues' is the equivalence offered in LSJ s.v., but the term will not convey to modern readers the essential point (added by Xenophon in the quotation below) that the footwear in question here was made of undressed leather. In other contexts the same material was used to cover siege-engines etc.
[2] Xenophon, Anabasis 4.5.14.
