A Roman red terracotta oil lamp with a rounded body, concave discus, and triangular voluted nozzle. There is one filling hole to the right of the discus, and three incised concentric circles surround the decorative scene. The central discus is decorated with the head of Bacchus (the Roman equivalent of Dionysus) facing right, with a long nose, and pointed headpiece; this head ‘sprouts’ from the back of a panther standing facing left. To the right is a separate phallus. The reverse of the lamp is plain with a singular line marking the base.
Date: Circa 1st-2nd Century AD
