This project focuses on
the digital presentation of the Greek votive terracottas brought to light at
the Extramural Sanctuary of Demeter and Persephone in the
Wadi Bel Gadir at Cyrene, Libya (see above). This has lead to the inclusion of other corpora of terracottas, including those from Cyrene's Artemision and the sanctuary of the Chthonic Nymphs, as well as from the site of Apollonia.
figurines have been found at Cyrene's Artemision, theater,
agora, so-called Temple of the Divinity of Fecundity, Temple
of Demeter, Sanctuary of the Chthonic Nymphs, and in tombs
from Cyrene's necropoleis, those from the Extramural Sanctuary
of Demeter and Persephone represent the largest extant corpus
of figurines found to date anywhere in Cyrenaica. They complement
the figurines discovered outside of Cyrene, at Tocra, Apollonia, Benghazi, Eusperides,
El Gubba, and Budrasc, but far exceed these in number.
