Ancient Israel, Pinched-Rim Saucer Oil Lamp, Middle Bronze Age II, c. 1730 - 1550 B.C.
From the traditional time of Israel in Egypt.

The earliest Palestinian lamp was the wheel-made saucer with four pinched corners, forming a square lamp with four wick channels. Although the four wick lamp continued to be produced, this later one wick type became increasingly popular and became the prototype for almost all the lamps that followed.
