Inscriptions
Condition Quite badly worn. It has been glued back together using three fragments. There seems to be a fragment missing at the bottom of the statue, therefore the figurine is incomplete. Most of the features of the statue are badly worn. There are many soil deposits all over the figure. Inside the hollow figurine there appears to be some sort of plant.

Comparanda Cf. D.B. Thompson, Troy. The Terracotta Figurine, nos. 150-155. Perhaps this figurine was placed outside at some point, as this would account for its bad condition and the plant inside it.
