This book focuses on 1030 terracottas from the city excavation (Stadtgrabung) in Pergamon, dating from the Hellenistic and Roman Imperial era; it also examines many older and more recent findings from other excavations in the town. The terracottas from Pergamon’s residential area show a broad variety of themes, but four religious themes predominate: the Mother of Gods, Aphrodite, Eros, and Dionysus.
"This book fulfils its aim to create a basis for discussion and future research on the coroplastic of Pergamon. It is hoped that the author will pursue his detailed studies on Pergamene terracottas with better stratified new finds." Lâtife Summerer in: BMCR 2020.03.41
