The archaeological evidence provides us with significant clues about the role of thesculptural display in the urban space during the Hellenistic period. The paper focuseson two study cases from Tindari and Solunto respectively. Thanks to the investigationof overlooked archival documents and historiography, it has been possible to singleout the monumental contexts of the sculptures. It is now quite certain that the twomarble Nikai from Tyndaris come from the mid-19th century excavation at the theatre,perhaps from the paraskenia of the huge late Hellenistic scene building. The secondpart deals with the so-called Zeus of Solunto, its extant pieces and the puzzling remainsof the sacred buildings located above the theatre of the town.
