Greek, Athens(?), Miniature Pottery Oil Lamp, c. late 6th - mid 5th century B.C.
The referenced lamp from Isthmia is a very similar miniature lamp with the same shape and same dull brown glaze on buff pottery. Broneer identifies it as, "probably a local [Athens] product." Broneer also writes, "There are no close parallels from the Athenian Agora. See Corinth IV, ii, p. 137, fig 61, which, however is later, as shown by the longer nozzle" On later examples of this type, the nozzle is long enough that the wick hole does not extend into the shoulder or discus.AH21462. Broneer Isthmia type IV, 59 (very similar), cf. Corinth IV 61 (longer nozzle, later), Getty Museum 7 (same, pink clay, S. Italy), Choice, complete and intact, much of brown slip lost (visible in photo), 2.8 cm (1 1/8") high, 5.8 cm (2 1/4") long; wheel-turned, partial dull brown slip on slightly pink buff pottery, round, deep, flat bottomed bowl with sides narrowing slightly to a groove setting off a low round disc base, slightly concave discus, no handle, small short projecting nozzle with wick hole extending into the discus, large fill hole; ex Edgar L.
