A general discussion of architectural terracottas is followed by a catalogue of those found at Corinth. The objects are listed under Antefixes, Ridge Palmettes, Simas, Decorated Eaves-Tiles, and Miscellaneous. Each type of terracotta is carefully analyzed and discussed leading to a chronology roughly similar to that devised for Corinthian vases, with dark-on-light decoration predating the light-on-dark.
