Hi all,
A friend who's father had to go to a home cleaned the house and gave me this oil lamp. I'm sure its an original but would like to know more as to which era and location it came from. I see some faces on the surface. haven't tried to clean it of course.
Anyone can help me on which area of the roman world I have to look?
Thanks!

and found a second source: http://www.ancientresource.com/lots/roman/roman-oil-lamps.html

With ridge around the discus and continuing as a channel on the rounded spout, pellets around the shoulder and ring handle; the bottom flattened.

Bussiere/Rivel, La Collection Rivel (BAR 2012), p. 180, no. 195 for the type; Ex collection of John Hibner acquired in Turkey during military service in the 1960's. #AR2995: $299

Excellent detective work Yves !!

I wasn't aware of the British Museum work, and have now downloaded it.
