During the last 35 years, the excavations at the ancient city of Pherai, in Thessaly, have brought to light rich material, as well as important documentation relating to the production of terracotta figurines, as part of the intensive activity of the Pheraian ceramic workshops of the Hellenistic period. In this paper some characteristics of the local production are presented by referring to the workshops and the techniques, the contextualisation, the chronology and the use of the terracotta figurines at the city of Pherai, as well as to the possible relationships and influences from other regions.
