Die vorliegende Studie verfolgt ein doppeltes Ziel: auf der einen Seite, die Frage der umstrittenen Datierung der ``phrygischen'', bzw. anatolisch/späthethitischen Skulpturen zu klären und auf der anderen, ihren Einfluss auf die archaische, griechische Plastik zu bestimmen. Gegenstand der Untersuchung sind Skulpturen männlicher und weiblicher Figuren, als auch Tier- und Mischwesendarstellungen. Für viele ``phrygische'' Skulpturen wird eine frühere Datierung ins späte eight. und 7. Jh. v. Chr. vorgeschlagen. Konstantinos Kopanias, Dr. phil.
