Byzantine Antiquities
Roman - Byzantine, Italy, Bronze Acorn Steelyard Pendant Weight, c. 1st to 7th century A.D.

|Weights| |&| |Scales|, |Roman| |-| |Byzantine,| |Italy,| |Bronze| |Acorn| |Steelyard| |Pendant| |Weight,| |c.| |1st| |to| |7th| |century| |A.D.||weight|
Steelyards with acorn shaped counterweights were in use from the 1st century A.D. to the late Roman and Byzantine times. This weight is close to a very light Byzantine pound (285g) (cf. Ballance et al. 1989, 134). See Waclawik, M. "A bronze steelyard with an acorn-shaped counterweight from the Paphos Agora" in Studies in Art and Civilization 20 (Krakow, 2016) (PDF Available) for a similar but larger (405.5g) acorn weight and steelyard. The article notes that another similar scale and acorn weight was found at Pompeii.
LT96147. Bronze weight, Romano-Byzantine acorn steelyard pendant weight, 280.7g, 62mm tall, 33mm maximum diameter, part of loop missing otherwise complete and intact, light corrosion, light encrustation, $300.00 SALE |PRICE| $270.00

|Glass| |Antiquities|, |Islamic,| |Mold| |Blown| |Glass| |Jar,| |c.| |9th| |-| |10th| |Century| |A.D.|
Dating on this type is somewhat uncertain, we only found the one similar jar in the many references examined (Newark Museum 227). That specimen is smaller, with a ornamental diamond pattern and thick blue-green glass. It may not be closely related and, for that piece, Susan Auth omitted the date from the description.
AG21144. cf. Newark Museum 227, Average, reconstructed, missing fragment (visible in photo), weathering, old glued on museum or collectors tag, irregularly shaped cylindrical jar, transparent green glass, 11 cm (4 3/8") tall, 8.5 cm (3 3/8") maximum diameter, mold-blown annulet dimple pattern on sides of cylindrical body, sloped shoudler with extended flair at the bottom, convex neck, flaring mouth, fire rounded rim, kicked bottom with pontil mark, from the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years; $225.00 SALE |PRICE| $203.00
 


Late Roman - Byzantine, Holyland (Syro-Palestinian), "Elongated" Pottery Oil Lamp, c. 400 - 650 A.D.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Late| |Roman| |-| |Byzantine,| |Holyland| |(Syro-Palestinian),| |"Elongated"| |Pottery| |Oil| |Lamp,| |c.| |400| |-| |650| |A.D.|
This type is identified by Adler as a Transjordan elongated lamp. Adler writes that the shoulders are narrow and ornamented with a wide variety of motifs including linear bands, geometric, and floral designs; the handle is tongue shaped projecting horizontally and decorated with three or more bands; the nozzle is decorated with geometric or floral designs or rarely a cross. The type is found in the northern part of Transjordan, and in Israel, mainly in northern Israel and the Beit Shean area. They date possibly as early as the fifth century, mostly to the sixth century and extending into the first half of the seventh century. In the Hellenistic and Roman eras Beit Shean was the Decapolis city Scythopolis. Click the photo on the right of the Roman theater at Beit Shean, to learn more about the city. Scythopolis
AL93927. Transjordan elongated lamp; Adler type JOR.1, cf. 967 - 968 (similar ornamentation); 8.6 cm (3 5/8") long, Choice, complete and intact, small cut on rim, tiny chips in handle, minor deposits (visible in photos), c. 400/500 - 600/650 A.D.; pink-orange clay, mold made, elongated body, tongue shaped handle rising diagonally ornamented with three vertical bands, double rim around large filling hole, pattern of dots in the angles of zig-zag lines on the shoulders and nozzle, decorative circle on the bottom (not a true ring base); $120.00 SALE |PRICE| $108.00
 


Byzantine, Holyland (Northern Israel or Jordan), Beit Natif Related Pottery Lamp, c. 500 - 550 A.D.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Byzantine,| |Holyland| |(Northern| |Israel| |or| |Jordan),| |Beit| |Natif| |Related| |Pottery| |Lamp,| |c.| |500| |-| |550| |A.D.|
This lamp, from northern Israel or Jordan, is a locally made copy of the Beit Natif type. Beit Natif, in southern Israel, is the site of the primary workshop where the prototype "Beit Natif" Judaean lamps were made. This lamp and Beit Natif lamps typically have a round body, a small handle, and the sides of the nozzle are sightly convex (bow-shaped) with a narrow rim around its shoulder that is pinched to strengthen the impression that the sides are convex. The flat ended nozzle is a 6th century characteristic, normally associated with a conical handle. This lamp has the earlier tongue shaped handle style, suggesting it is an early example of Adler type BN.7.
AL93932. Adler type 6.2, BN.7; cf. Alder 960, Qedem 8 515 (conical handle); 8.3 cm (3 1/4") long, near Choice, intact, some surface flaking, small cracks, c. 500 - 550 A.D.; mould-made, buff clay, trace of cream slip, the nozzle ends in almost a straight line, rim on shoulder of nozzle pinched to create the impression the sides are convex, decorations on nozzle obscure, double rim around large filling hole, tongue shaped handle rising diagonally ornamented with three vertical bands, radiating bands on shoulders of body, slight ring base; $110.00 SALE |PRICE| $99.00

Late Roman - Byzantine, Holyland (Syro-Palestinian), Bi-Lanceolate Pottery Oil Lamp, c. 300 - 500 A.D.

Adler notes these lamps are found throughout the northern part of Israel, especially in Beit Shean and Hamat Gader, and date to the fourth and fifth centuries. Hamat Gader was already a well known health and recreation site in Roman times, mentioned in Strabo, Origen and Eunapius, as well as the Rabbinic literature. Construction of the bath complex began in the 2nd century by the 10th Roman Legion, which was garrisoned in nearby Gadara (modern Umm Qais). The ancient Hebrew name means hot springs of (the ancient city of) Gadara. The Arabic name El-Hamma preserves this, and the name of the tel located near the site, Tel Bani, is a corruption of the Latin word meaning "baths." The photo on the right is the inscription of empress Aelia Eudocia's poem praising the qualities of the springs at Hamat Gader, placed where visitors could see it as they went into the pool.
