Cnidus is located in modern Datca which is a small town of Mugla. This paper reviews 55 terracotta votive protom figurines found at the 'Round Temple Terrace' in Cnidus by the American archeologist Iris C. Love in 1967. The terracottas are analyzed and studied in their typological, chronological, iconographical and iconological aspects within this study.
