p. 322, fig. 5.
Molded lamp has a handle rising from the back of the body at a 75 degree angle. The nozzle extends to the side opposite the handle. The handle is 3 cm. wide and 1.5 cm. deep, decorated on the inside face with a cross. The fill hole and nozzle are outlined by a ridge. A zigzag pattern surrounds the fill hole; a row of dots surrounds the fill hole below the ridge. The base was formed by trimming the body away to create a ridge. The lamp bears traces of a red wash which is largely worn off.
Lamps, Early Christian.
