The present book is the second part of the Corpus of Neolithic Figurines from Thessaly, the total number of which exceeds 2,500 items. All these figurines are surface finds and belonged formerly to private collections of Larissaean citizens. The large majority of figurines included in Volume II come from the collection of Mr K. Theodoropoulos, High School Headmaster. Other items come from the collections of Dr C. Chouliaras, Medical Doctor, Mr E. Karamanolis, lawyer, Mr T. Tloupas, photographer, as well as Mr Chassiotis, Mr Paliougas, Mr Totsikas, and Mr Tsolkas. In 1992 most of the collectors kindly responded to an appeal by the Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, Larissa, in view of the erection of the new archaeological museum in town, so figurines and other items of their collections came into the possession of the museum. A number of them (362) were first published in 1996, while a few are already exhibited in the temporary Larissa museum. As with volume I, many practical problems arose in the course of publishing these figurines, since the author had to make persistent and strenuous efforts to assemble, photograph, classify and study this material collected from the Plain of Thessaly, and diverse and major administrative obstacles had to be overcome before this project was finally completed. Thus, presented here are 407 figurines, a cultural contribution to the archaeological background of Greece. Since none of the figurines is from a known context, their dating is based exclusively on stylistic grounds.
