Title:   Lamp
Category:   Bronze
Description:   A lamp with handle decoration in form of Greek cross.
The lamp before cleaning seems practically complete; two corners are missing from the arms of the cross.
The ball-shaped body has a small raised base, and a raised ring round the filling hole. The nozzle is long, the wick-hole finished with a flat band, as on the Roman lamps of type XXI. The handle, round in section, rises from the back of the body in a double loop ending against the back of the cross.
Fastened by corrosion against the front of the cross is the small shell-shaped lid, which when closed covered the filling hole.
Context:   Well. Lower fill.
Cf. P 2119.
