An oil lamp in the shape of a circular, half oval body with spout and central hole; the handle, a stump of which remains, was to one side on the upper surface, opposite the spout. The central hole has a channel leading into the body but continues vertically through the centre, indicating that such lamps were intended to be mounted on stands with a projecting fastening. This lamp is Italo-Hellenistic work.
