The present volume is a corpus of unpublished Neolithic figurines from Thessaly, formerly in the private collection of Mr Angelos Bastis, resident of Volos. Many practical problems were encountered in publishing these figurines. However, thanks to a series of persistent and strenuous efforts to assemble, photograph, classify and study this material collected from the Plain of Thessaly, as well as the successful surmounting of diverse administrative obstacles, this project was finally realized. Thus, presented here are 186 figurines, a cultural contribution to the archaeological background of Greece. In 1992 Mr A. Bastis kindly offered figurines and other items in his collection to the Volos Museum. Some of these objects were already exhibited until the erection of the new wind of the Volos Museum. Since then a separate room has been deserved for his whole collection. Since almost none of the figurines presented are from a known context, their dating is based exclusively on stylistic grounds.
