Item Description:

Measurements: 3.7 x 2.0 x 1.4 inches

This ancient oil lamp dates back to around the 2nd to 3rd century CE, and originates from the Roman provinces of northern Africa.

Lamps like these were household items in ancient times, and were mass produced by craftsman with reusable molds. Similar to coins, they are relatively common finds today as a result. People used these lamps by pouring oil into the large fill hole on top, sticking a cloth wick through the spout, and lighting the end of the wick. The lamp would then provide light until the wick used up all the oil inside.
