Figurines of Neolithic Thessaly - The A. Bastis Collection



The present volume is a Corpus of unpublished Neolithic figurines from Thessaly, belonging formerly to the private collection of Mr Angelos Bastis, resident of Volos, who kindly offered them in 1992, together with other items of his collection, to the local Museum.

Since they come from an unknown context, and no stratigraphical data exist for almost all of the 186 figurines presented in this volume, their dating has been based exclusively on stylistic grounds.

Publishing these figurines encountered many practical problems. Thanks to a series of persistent and strenuous efforts Ι made in order to assemble, photograph, classify and study this material collected from the plain of Thessaly, as well as to successfully surmount diverse administrative obstacles, this project has been able to be realized.
