Medieval Artifacts
Byzantine - Islamic, Jordan or Northern Israel, "Jerash" Type Terracotta Lamp, c. 600 - 900 A.D.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Byzantine| |-| |Islamic,| |Jordan| |or| |Northern| |Israel,| |"Jerash"| |Type| |Terracotta| |Lamp,| |c.| |600| |-| |900| |A.D.|
Jerash lamps were made in a the Gerasa Hippodrome Byzantine-era Workshop beginning under Byzantine rule after 500 A.D. They were more common in Transjordan the Umayyad Period and Abbasid Periods, and lasted until c. 900 A.D. Finds at Beit Shean indicate the type was also made there, but only until c. 700 A.D. The most unusual aspect of the type is a high vertical handle usually ends in three nodules that evoke an animals head and ears, leading to the handles being described as zoomorphic. Ina Kehrberg-Ostrasz noted, however, the nodules worked as carrying devices: one can hold the lamp horizontal by placing a thumb between the "ears" and wrapping two fingers around the "head." See our |Jerash |Lamps page in NumisWiki.

In the London Museum medieval catalogue, Ward-Perkins dates similar chapes to the late 15th or 16th century. He suggests that metal dagger chapes were only used on the sheaths of military daggers or the more elaborate forms of civilian dagger. The great majority of surviving leather sheaths belonged to ordinary knives or knife-daggers and these have no metal terminal.
