Greek terracotta statuette of a seated Actor, Attic, middle of the 4th century B.C. He assumes a thinking position, his right hand, placed on his chin, supports the head in an attitude of reflection, as if he is planning a prank. This genre of person is used in ancient low comedy to designate a slave; he was a precursor of the cunning, skilled slave, who would become a very important character in the New Comedy, 8.9 cm high.

Hellenistic bronze statuette of a dancer, 2nd century B.C. The man of an astonishing thinness is a hunchback and has a large deformity on his chest, which is of large circumference, maybe in his youth he was a victim of rickets, his enormous phallus has gotten caught between his legs. The age of the dancer is difficult to estimate but the sooth forehead and the features of the face seem to indicate that he is a man of some age, 7.8 cm high. Private collection
