Ancient Late Roman Byzantine Christian Holy Land Pottery Oil Lamp - 500 Ad For Sale

Ancient Late Roman Byzantine Christian Holy Land Pottery Oil Lamp - 500 Ad

An attractive ancient Late Roman Christian oil lamp, dating to the 5th - 6th Century A.D. originating from the Holy land.

The lamp decorated with a delicate band of impressed geometric designs.

Lamps such as this were filled with olive oil in ancient times and lit by means of a thick wick, which protruded from the nozzle end. The flickering light of the oil lamp has been man's only means of illuminating the darkness for millennia, long before gas-lamps and modern electricity.

For a similar example currently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art please see the following link.

Length: 3 3/4 inches.

Condition: Very good. Minor chips, as shown. Soot marks around the wick hole, fascinating evidence of its use in antiquity.

Provenance:

Ex Israeli private collection. Legally exported from Israel and likely found in Northern Israel.

Please note: This is a genuine ancient oil lamp offered for sale without reserve to promote our superb inventory of antiquities and ancient coins.
