A Greek terracotta doll dating to the 5th century BC will star in a sale at Vectis Auctions in the UK, reports the Teeside Gazette.
It's thought to originate from the city of Corinth and is expected to sell for around £300-500 ($455-759).
This estimate may seem low for such an ancient piece, but such dolls are in fact far from rare.
As doll expert Mary Hiller explained to the publication: "Very many examples of the little jointed clay dolls have been discovered, usually in the temples dedicated to Demeter and Persephone, Aphrodite and Artemus…
"This type is of a tall slim girl with hair loosely dressed in a topknot and sometimes wearing a wreath or ribbon. Such figures usually hold clappers or cymbals in their hands."
