Terracotta Figure of a naked pregnant woman squatting

3rd - 2nd Century BC 

Ptolemaic 

Locally produced and identical to British Museum 1886,0401.1452, which was also found at a terracottas workshop in Naukratis. This waster was damaged in the kiln, either whilst loading or during firing. It is unlikely to have been painted, so the traces of white are from plaster in the deposit from which it was found.
