A delicate Ancient Roman Herodian terracotta oil lamp. It features a circular, wheel-made body with a large central filling-hole surrounded by a narrow flat discus separated by a well-defined ridge. The wide spatulated nozzle, with an incised horizontal line above, was shaped by hand and subsequently attached to the body of the lamp. Slightly rounded unmarked base with signs of knife-pairing used to create the smoother finish.
Date: Circa 1st Century AD
