This catalogue presents nearly 1,000 of the British Museum's extensive collection of ancient Greek terracottas. Volume III covers Hellenistic terracotta figures from most areas of the Mediterranean apart from Egypt, southern Italy and Sicily. After the general introduction, the figures are grouped by geographical region and each piece is fully described and discussed. Black and white plates illustrate every figure and colour photographs give a representative selection of the range of clays and pigments.
