Storie di lite ‘ordinaria’ nel gruppo fittile di attori comici da Tebe

A terracotta group which depicts two comedians was found in the recent excavation of the northeastern necropolis of Thebes, in Boeotia. Analysis of the costume and the compositional scheme used, and comparison with similar representations allow us to propose a more accurate chronology of the group, and to identify the types of masks. In contrast to many individual statuettes, this group occurs more rarely; however, it offers the opportunity to identify the subject. This is the dispute between the two servants for a bag of food, a recurring motif in the intrigue of the play, which was standardized in the New Comedy.
