Mould of a female head, Rodhe (Roses, Alt Empordà), 3rd century BC

This mould, which is made from the same clay as Massaliote amphorae, made it possible to make terracotta busts of a female personage, possibly the goddess Demeter. It is a worn mould, obtained from an original from Magna Grecia, probably from a workshop in the area of Tarento (c. 400 BC).
