Ancient Oil Lamp

Post Number:#1  Postby artifactcollector » Sat Jun 24, 2017 10:20 am


I recently came into the possession of an ancient oil lamp, but I am afraid I know little about it. I was hoping someone here might be able to provide some information on it.

I know it was picked up In Jordan quite a few decades ago. My best educated guess is that it's 6-8th century AD and might possibly have been crafted by the Romans. I did find this source while I was researching: ... lamps.html

Would anyone happen to know some information about oil lamps of this kind?
