There can be no slices seen on the ancient depictions. So I asume the material is soft enough.

The depictions I saw looked to me like stone.  Grin But otherwise just a flat strap. On some depictions it looks like the strap is a bit wider in the pouch area with a very slow transition to the ends of the retention and release cords. On the depictions where the end of the retention cord is well visible there is no such thing as a finger loop shown, but I do not know how reliable the depictions are really in that point as the finger loop is a very basic and useful feature.

So e.g. just a strap of soft leather, 5cm (2") wide and 80cm (32") long, could be a version of that type of sling.

Somewhere here is also a thread about the Archaic and Balearic sling description. WHere the former is three-threaded and the later single-threaded. When seeing the three-threadedness as beeing only the pouch like the depicted Etruscan slings than the Balearic slings could not have had a split pouch like the above described strap sling. There is e.g. Strabo who writes the Balears used e.g. bast like material. If we combine this information there were woven or braided strap slings. (Strabo mentions more materials which I do not remember at the moment.)

Zwiebeltuete,

It probably has to do with late nights and exams this week, but I am not getting what you mean by the three-threaded and the single-threaded.  Are you talking about a single thread in the split pouch and three woven together in each "arm" of the pouch? 

Cheers,
Adam
