The Handmade’s Tale: The View from Figurines on Cult and Society in Ancient Corinth
Although Corinth was one of the premier city-states of ancient Greece, Roman conquest and rebuilding eradicated much of the material evidence for the Greek city. An unexplored source of information for Corinthian culture and society in the 7th to 5th centuries BCE comes from terracotta figurines made in large numbers for the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore on Acrocorinth, the rocky acropolis overlooking Corinth. New research on the production and dedication of the fully and partially handmade figurines of goddesses and mortals reveals a wealth of unexpected information. This talk explores the evidence from figurines for how a cult creates its divine iconography as well as local clothing styles, ideas on gender, and the role of women in the welfare of the city.
