4-2 cc. BC. From the OAM collection Terracotta figurines constitute a special section of antique sculpture - small sculptures. Terracotta made of baked clay provide rich material for studying many aspects of the life of the ancient Greeks. The OAM materials collected from the excavations of Tyra contain a terracotta comic mask of an actor with common features (perhaps a servant or a slave). Low forehead with deep wrinkles, large laughing mouth. The mask is two-faced: straight face - satyr mask, inverted face - bearded face. Traces of white and red paint have been preserved on the obverse. According to one version, such miniature copies of theatrical masks were brought to the temple or placed in a burial. Sometimes sarcophagi were decorated with such masks.
