Item:223704480026Late Roman/Byzantine/Early Christian Style Terracotta Pottery Oil Lamp - Museum replica?Description:A pottery oil lamp in the late Roman/Byzantine style of 400-600 AD, measuring approx 5.5" (14 cm) in length, or lenticular shape with a simple lug handle, pointed spout and circular filler hole. The entire upper surface is decorated between the shoulder and raised rim with a scrolling curvilinear design in raised relief surrounding what appear to be early Christian crosses. The central channel bears Greek lettering in raised relief, and the lug and shoulder are decorated with simple circles and further crosses to the lug. The base is decorated with a circular medallion of four crosses around a central wheel. Manufactured from red terracotta, apparently burnished and stained with oil. The oil lamp is in exceptional condition with only a few minor chips to the lug and central opening and with an area of abrasion to the base. I have no idea of the origin of this piece but, owing to the condition, it may be a high quality museum replica, possibly of some age.Dimensions:Approx length: 14 cm (5.5"). Approx maximum width: 10 cm (4.8"). Approx max height: 5.5 cm (2.2"). Approx weight: 180 gCondition:Excellent condition with a few minor chips and some abrasion to the base.
