Chapter Summary

This section of the book Terres cuites et culte domestique: Bestiaire de l'Égypte gréco-romaine, contains 11 plates. The plates include Baubo-Louvre Museum, figure transporting a naos-Louvre Museum, Dancer-Petrie Museum, Woman with children (Marseille, Museum of Mediterranean Archaeology), Bes accompanied by a woman (Louvre Museum), Bes holding a snake (terracotta plate, Museum of Mediterranean Archaeology), Cavalier "Scythian" (Petrie Museum), Harpocrates riding a horse (Louvre Museum). In this book, Celine Boutantin provides a synthesis of the production workshop figurines and studies personal beliefs and practices in Greco-Roman Egypt. 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. An inventory of figurines found in homes, temples and tombs allow to study the functions of these objects. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Celine Boutantin; Graeco-Roman Egypt; local cults; personal beliefs; personal practices; production workshop figurines; terracotta
