A significant number of terracotta figurines and objects, mainly dated to the Hellenistic and Roman periods, were found in Pergamon’s residential area between 1973 and 1993. These cannot be confidently attributed to domestic contexts, and a possible provenance from a small sanctuary or a votive deposit, a shop or a workshop should also be considered as possible. Nevertheless, considering other, already known Pergamene types, these new fragments give a wider and better insight into several issues, such as the relations between groups of workshops, the coroplastic production of other sites, and religious preferences.
