Jerash, Jordan is north of the national capital Amman. Inhabited since the Bronze Age, its known for the ruins of the walled Greco-Roman city Gerasa just outside the modern city. The historian Josephus mentions the city as being principally inhabited by Syrians, but also having a small Jewish community. "Jerash lamps" parallel the very similar Jewish "Daroma" lamps" of Judaea. A large group of "Jerash lamps" was found in a potters shop excavated in Jerash, hence the name. Some Jerash lamps have been found in Israel, at Beit-Guvrin, Nazareth, Caesarea, and other sites. Usually the nozzle is decorated with a fig or grape leaf, decorations on the shoulders vary but floral and geometric patterns are most common. This lamp is attributed to Jerash based on its reputed find location (said to be Northern Israel but perhaps actually Jordan) and on the color of the red slip, known there and rare elsewhere. Otherwise this lamp is a bit different from the typical Jerash "Daroma" lamp. Gerasa
