This sequel to the Archaic and Classical volumes publishes almost 1,000 Hellenistic terracottas, each of which is illustrated and described in full.

Arranged geographically, most of the Mediterranean is represented, excluding Egypt, southern Italy and Sicily, with each figure presented in the area where it was probably produced. Each regional section is introduced with a discussion of the area’s find-spots, and history and technical data is presented in appendices.

The introduction outlines general questions of the evolution of artistic styles, techniques and functions of Hellenistic terracottas. The black-and-white plates illustrate every example, while colour plates offer a representative selection of the range of clays found in the terracottas presented here, and also of the coloured pigments used in their decoration.
