In this contribution, four terracotta statuettes from Tell el-Maskhuta are presented. In the first part, a Bes statuette, and a female head are described, whose meaning may be related to the Late and Ptolemaic Period domestic religious practices. In the second part, two female figurines are presented. Once called “concubines of the dead”, they are better defined as “fertility female figures”. Interestingly, one of them holds a little monkey. They may be dated to the Late and Ptolemaic Periods.
