Medieval Artifacts

Byzantine, Syro-Palestinian, Terracotta Oil Lamp, 7th - 8th Century A.D.

This rare type is similar to flat-topped round Byzantine lamps discovered in Jerash, bearing Arabic inscriptions with dates from the eighth century, the name of the potter, and Jerash as the place of manufacture (Schloessinger 578 and 579). Those lamps are clearly different, but the similarity may indicate the date of our lamp. Perhaps the Tel Aviv source points to a Palestina Prima origin.
AG63808. Terracotta lamp; cf. Anawati C250 (rounder, also with arc and pellet ornamentation, but arcs from both mouth and shoulder); 8.3 cm long, Good condition, two cracks radiating from spout, soot on nozzle, mold-made, ovoid shape, convex nearly flat diskus ornamented with pellets within arcs from shoulder, knife-pared conical handle, raised rim around filling hole, raised rim at shoulder to from handle to nozzle, convex side above sharp carination, flat bottom with ring base; from a Florida dealer, purchased in Tel Aviv in 1971; $120.00 (Ä102.00)
