The wounded Amazon of Kresilas

On  this website you see
a picture of an unknown
terracotta  statuette.


This figure is, as yet, the only  
known   preserved ancient  sculpture of  the  Amazon   typ   Mattei  we know of.

Due to  the  origin date,
the sculpture is at least
the   earliest  represen-
tation  of   an    Amazon 
created  for Ephesus.

Based   on  scientific  an-
alysis, this statuette may 
be a model for an ancient
small   reproduction   or,
of  scientific  interest,  a
"preliminary study"  for 
the lost, oversized origi-
nal statue in bronze
