A Roman terracotta oil lamp featuring a decorated discus and heart-shaped nozzle. The discuss features a deeply incised scene, depicting the god Mars. He appears helmeted with an ornate side-plumed helmet, cloaked with a chlamys and holding a barbed spear. The shoulders are decorated with a leaf-shaped continuous pattern, separated from the discuss by three concentric circles. Unusually, the reverse of the lamp is also decorated, with a line of ovolo decoration to the nozzle. There is a large base mark, followed by three sets of concentric circles.
Date: Circa 3rd century AD.
