Studies at the University of Graz, on Late Classical and Hellenistic limestone and marble sculpture from Cyprus, investigated issues of iconography, typology, style and chronology. The question whether contemporaneous terracotta figurines could be compared to stone sculpture in relation to their iconographies, place of production, chronology and quantities was raised when dealing with limestone sculpture. This paper discusses selected figurines of the first processing campaign in the Cyprus Museum in 2013 based on the card catalogue and the inventory books.
