Abstract

Funerary sculpture of the Classical Period discovered so far in the ancient Boeotian town of Thespiae remains still only partially studied and published. This paper traces back the research status of this important class of funerary monuments. The almost exclusive use of local limestone for the working out of the stelai as well as their figurative repertory are examined. A piece of stele is published here, which as the Berlin one dedicated to Polyxena, represents a female figure holding a statuette in her hand. The significance of similar representations is finally discussed.
