This paper concerns the study of the votive deposits, containing Corinthian kotylai and kotyliskoi, discovered in the Thesmophorion, situated on the Bitalemi hill at Gela (Sicily). The work, part of a broader analysis of these specific Corinthian classes, examines in depth the votive depositions made during the first phase of the sanctuary’s frequentation (5th layer). This report highlights six composite deposits that testify, through their material associations, some ritual features related to the Demeter Thesmophoros’ cult.
