Abstract

This volume provides a study on the 3rd millennium B.C. anthropomorphic clay figurines of the Middle Euphrates region. The research is based on over 2400 specimens, mostly in a fragmentary state, retrieved in thirteen different salvage excavations located along the Middle course of the Syrian Euphrates, from Tell Shiyukh Tahtani to the north to Tall Bi’a to the south.

1The volume is subdivided in eight chapters and is aimed to give a deep insight on the anthropomorphic clay figurines of the region under examination. The new synthetic regional typology (based on the large amount of specimens) enables an understanding of figurines development and diffusion in a broader perspective. Particular attention is also paid to manufacturing aspects such as modelling, rendering and decoration. Moreover, the detailed mapping on their distribution provides new hints for the understanding of the use of these objects
