My grandfather did some digs in the Israel/Palestine area. I would assume this is from there. Can you help me ID it or give me any info? Thanks a lot guys!

It's not a strictly "Herodian" style, as most of them are without ornamentation, and have a different spout shape (see attached image).

I did a quick scan through "Oil Lamps of the Holy Land  -  The Adler Collection" and didn't find an exact match.

But the overall body style and somewhat elongated rounded spout are reminiscent of what in the book are classified as "Hellenistic" style.

It is a Petraean-Early Byzantine Oil Lamp, c. 325 - 520 A.D.
