Riassunto: This volume presents 569 objects of baked clay from three sites in the Amuq Plain (southern Turkey). They were excavated in the 1930's by a team from the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, directed by Robert J. Braidwood. Most of them were never published. Their dates range from the late 3rd millennium BC to the Hellenistic period. The terracottas are presented in a catalogue, but also set in a frame of their cultural and artistic background. This book is thus not only a publication of material from the Amuq excavations, but also a history of 2nd and 1st millennium terracotta production in ancient Syria. The study of these figurines highlights the extent and limitations of iconographic influences from abroad and proves the continuity of images and beliefs across the borders of cultural periods. German text.
L'autore: Alexander Pruss is a researcher at the Ludwig Maximilians-University of Munich. He has written on figurines and pottery from Syria and Upper Mesopotamia and has dealt with various problems of chronology.
