What's with all the ankles?
But someone saw him — Cadmus' daughter with lovely ankles,
Ino, a mortal woman once with human voice (5.366-67)
...the man himself delights
in the grand feasts of the deathless gods on high,
wed to Hebe, famed for her lithe, alluring ankles (11.691-93)
"Man, don't look at her face — but you should see those ankles."
I think Homer was an ankle man. He also seemed to pay attention to braids and rosy fingers.
