Abstract

Τhis paper presents seven Hellenistic terracotta statuettes depicting male and female figures with diptychs found in a deposit also containing numerous figurines of children, and clearly associated with the Euboean sanctuary of Artemis Amarysia. Figures holding diptychs as an iconographic type are reviewed and the motif is incorporated into the social and educational context of the period. The figurines as votive offerings and their connection to rites of passage is also investigated, taking into account the nature of Artemis and the rituals attested in her sanctuaries, as well as the significance of the sanctuary to its founding city, Eretria.
