Chapter Summary

The appendix of the book Terres cuites et culte domestique: Bestiaire de l'Égypte gréco-romaine contains terracotta discovered in funerary context. The book includes a study considering the archaeological contexts to propose a synthesis of production workshops and to show, in some cases, the adaptation of the production of local cults. Through the study of a particular theme, animal terracotta, the author raises questions about beliefs and personal or private practices in Greco-Roman Egypt. The author is engaged in a broad investigation seeking to link animal figurines with the places of worship of the gods to which the animals represented were associated. The survey was made difficult by the fact that in many cases, the source of these figures, kept long in museums, could not be specified. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: animal figurines; animal terracotta; Graeco-Roman Egypt; local cults; personal practices; production workshops
