Cypriot Bichrome Ware Amphora, Iron Age, c. 1100 - 750 B.C.

|Pottery| |Antiquities|, |Cypriot| |Bichrome| |Ware| |Amphora,| |Iron| |Age,| |c.| |1100| |-| |750| |B.C.|NEW
The referenced amphora in the British Museum, dated Early Iron Age, 1100 - 750 B.C., is very similar to this amphora. The most significant difference is only the concentric circle motifs are on the neck, vice shoulder. The geometric patterns on this amphora are also found on earlier Mycenaean pottery.

Hellenistic Greek, Levant (Jerash, Jordan?), Terracotta Sunburst Lamp, c. 150 - 30 B.C.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Hellenistic| |Greek,| |Levant| |(Jerash,| |Jordan?),| |Terracotta| |Sunburst| |Lamp,| |c.| |150| |-| |30| |B.C.|NEW
The Hellenistic sunburst design was meant to suggests the lamp is a little sun. Most similar published specimens have a small side lug (handle). This simpler type without a side lug is reputedly found mostly or entirely within areas once ruled by the Hasmonean Kingdom (Maccabees). It was apparently a smaller production and made for local use.

Jerash was ruled by the Hasmonean Kingdom from 99 - 63 B.C. after which it became part of the Roman province of Syria. The historian Josephus mentions the city as being principally inhabited by Syrians, but also having a small Jewish community. Roman era lamps made in Jerash are known for their "signature" red slip carelessly splashed on the upper half. FORVM received this lamp in a group that included several of the Jerash "Daroma" type oil lamps with the red slip. There are traces of that same color slip on the top of this lamp.
