16 ceramic figurines were discovered during excavations in 2015 at the site of Tell Nabasha by a team from the University of Liverpool. The figurines were found in several contexts dating from the Late to the early Ptolemaic Period. This article presents the assemblage and discusses the function of these figurines within the sacred landscape of Tell Nabasha linking them to the worship of primarily two local deities: Wadjet, Mistress of Imet and Harpocrates. The figurines were most likely produced on the site and donated as votive offerings to the local temple in particular during festivals conducted at the site.
