On  this website  you  see a photograph of  an unknown terracotta  statuette.

 



This figure is, as yet, the only  
known   preserved ancient  sculpture of  the  Amazon   typ   Mattei  we know of.





Due to the origin date, the  sculpture  is  at  least   the  earliest representation  of an   Amazon   created   for  Ephesus.




Based   on  scientific  an-
alysis, this statuette may  be a model for an ancient small reproduction or, of  scientific interest, a pre-
liminary" study  for  
the lost,  oversized   original statue in bronze.
