These issues were discussed within the specific contexts of the figurines, most of which were from controlled excavations. She also related the Ashmolean figurines to other contemporary material, particularly from the same contexts e.
She focused on the coroplastic evidence for an unusual masking tradition in Arcadia, as may be reflected by some Hellenistic and Roman figurines of dancing, theriomorphic kaneforoi from the sanctuary of Despoina at Lycosura. She argued that these may represent masked initiates of the cult of Despoina carrying sacrificial material that may relate to much earlier Cypriote traditions that Arcadians could have adopted later, in the Hellenistic period, at a time when a connection to Cyprus and its ancient traditions was intentionally emphasized.
Erin Walcek Averett and other participants in the conference view terracottas at the Cyprus Museum. She explored the motif of the standing, nude youth best known from the coroplastic repertoire of Boeotia of the Classical period. She argued that the iconographic motif of a seated child or adolescent is representative of a predominately larger category of figurines of children from the Hellenistic phase of the deposit that are the remains of the rituals of transition from adolescence to adulthood that took place at this sanctuary.
Located in what was obviously the industrial quarter of the city, this material comprises fragments of lamps, fragments of relief bowls, as well as fragments of figurines and molds, indicating that this particular artisan did not specialize in terracotta figurines.

Molds with partial imprints suggest that they were trial pieces believed to have been taken from bronze or marble prototypes. The purpose of this paper was to present evidence for the surface decoration of terracottas that was revealed during non-destructive archaeometric surface analyses using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry operating in air, X-ray equipment, and UV light.

More than objects were analysed so far and most of the pigments have been determined. These techniques enabled us to identify important aspects of the decoration of these figurines that had not been noted before, including the use of tin foil. Approaching this topic from a theoretical perspective, the author focused on the interpretation and use of such articulated figurines, maintaining that they were semiotic replacements of actual toys that then were used in a ritual communication process, when a secular object, a toy, was transformed into another medium for a religious use, such as a dedication in a tomb or a sanctuary.
The figurines that were presented were believed by the author to have been produced for socio-political purposes in support of Attic fertility cults and festivals of the 4 th century B. She argued that this could reveal that the ideas of death and rebirth were interlinked in funerary cults though the use of fertility figurines. It is the visible translation of social status or gender, but its consistent interpretation is hampered by lack of good contexts for terracottas of veiled women. Citing figurines from the Artemision at Thasos and the Artemision at Dirrachion that now are believed to represent mortal votaries, he made a similar a case for select figurines from Cyprus that traditionally have been identified as Aphrodite, and supported this interpretation by referring to wedding scenes on lebetes gamikoi that reflect identical iconographic elements.
That it may or may not represent Aphrodite is irrelevant.

Roughly 5, terracotta fragments recovered from a residential quarter on the southern slope of the acropolis of Pergamon were viewed as clear evidence for repetitive acts of devotion at an as yet unidentified popular sanctuary. One of the important features of this corpus is the inclusion of material from the early Imperial era, perhaps even as late as the Trajanic period.
Fragments of two molds found in this area suggest that coroplastic production also may have taken place in this residential quarter. The author viewed the production of terracottas at Sardis as being determined by wider social actions and notes that the use of figurines in the articulation of power in different levels of society must be readable.
The material, which dates from the late 4 th to the early 3 rd century B. These sculptures display obvious references to Apollo, as in the myth of Apollo and Marsyas, as well as to Artemis. Of wide distribution and of essentially religious use, the material presented consisted of fragments of ex-votos of deities, dedicants, reliefs, and representations of vegetal and edible offerings that were uncovered in the garden of the House of Marcus Fabius Rufus in Pompeii.
These coroplastic fragments reveal that this area was occupied in the Samnite period. This class of material is already well attested at Pompeii, with good parallels coming from the Bottaro votive deposit, the area of the Doric Temple, and sporadically from other contexts at Pompeii.
This analysis revealed the predominance of coroplastic material in graves, as opposed to its scarcity in sanctuaries. Moreover, figurines believed to represent Venus were the most common in funerary contexts, the majority of which were burials of children. Handmade Figurines.
The collection there is particularly noted for its coroplastic material, the highlight of which is half of the roughly 2, terracottas discovered by the Swedish-Cyprus Expedition at Ayia Irini between and ; the other half is in the Medelhavsmuseet in Stockholm. Eustathios Raptou of the Department of Antiquities lead a much appreciated guided tour of the collections of the museum. The corpus under investigation here comprises characteristic examples of Hellenistic Greek figurines, including Tanagras, but, more importantly, a large number of Egyptianizing figurines of mixed Greek and Egyptian character, many of which were produced locally, the author believes, perhaps from imported molds or surmoulage.
She presented a group of Hellenistic figurines of horsemen from a house at the Syrian site of Jebel el Khalid on the Euphrates that dated to the Seleucid period. Referencing the earlier Cypriote tradition for handmodeled figurines of horsemen with mold-made heads, perhaps best known from Kourion, the author illustrates what has changed in the Syrian version of this motif and what may have been the functions of these horsemen. Heather Jackson winds up her talk on horseman figurines from Jebel Khalid in Syria with a wish for safety for her excavation personnel.
Many reflect models known from Greek sites on the coast of Asia Minor, and perhaps even suggest the presence of Greek craftsmen. These document a distinct process of selection, assimilation, and cultural transformation evident particularly within a class of reclining figurines, traditionally male within the Greek repertoire, but remodeled to suit local needs with the representation of reclining nude females.
These comprise types that reflect strong Greek modes of expression and suggest the use of surmoulage in a conscious attempt to mimic a distinctly Greek character. These were recovered from tombs that dated no later than the 7 th century AD and appear to be unique to this site. An appeal was made for reasonable parallels.

The cordial hospitality of the convenors and the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus was evident not only in the welcoming and informal atmosphere of the conference, but also in the delicious lunches and mid-session coffee breaks, all of which contributed to a memorable experience. We look forward to seeing the conference papers in print. Contents - Previous document - Next document.
