* Greek history makes this OlderThanFeudalism: A famous sandal with markings on its sole that would leave prints reading "''ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΕΙ''" ("akolouthei," i.e., "follow me") was found in Athens, probably dating from the classical period (c. 4th century BCE). It appears that the streetwalkers were not the lowest rank of prostitutes in Classical Athens; as free and independent businesswomen, they seem to have been the middle of the scale, between the slave prostitutes of the public brothels established by Solon and the higher-class ''hetairai'' (courtesans, generally expected to be intellectually and artistically talented as well as hot). And as the shoe shows, some could even attract the kind of relatively-well-off clientele who could read, suggesting that a streetwalker might be able to work her way up into ''hetaira'' status in some cases.
