Abstract

This article is the third in a series publishing the Hellenistic freestanding sculpture from the Athenian Agora. A statuette of Agathe Tyche (1) is apparently the last in a century-long sequence that begins with the impressive ex-Aphrodite, S 37; a woman wearing a headscarf (2) joins a small group of such pieces, including the famous “Slipper-Slapper” from Delos; six small heads and one archaistic kore (3–9) complement those Aphrodites published in Part 1 of this series; the Artemis (10) is identified as Artemis Boulaia, worshipped by the Boule from ca. 270; an Athena and Pan (11, 12) complete a trio of sculptures from a Hellenistic workshop in the Industrial District; and a small female herm (13) from the “Bone Well” is shown not to be Aphrodite Ourania, as often assumed, but a domestic statuette of Eileithyia, and reasons are proposed for its presence in the well.
