'This is the first book in English for the last fifty years to deal with Greek Terracottas. Professor Webster, Professor of Greek at University College, London, is uniquely suited to write on these small genre figures, as he combines a great reputation for work in Greek archaeology and art with a close interest in everyday life amongst the Greeks. More than fifty illustrations range from the seventh to the first century B. C.'
