dc.description Fine red clay lamp with stamped decoration in center of an Assyrian-style lion at a pedestal or fire-topped altar. Two holes in this center area: one small piercing the animal’s chest, the other below the scene. The design is surrounded by two linear concentric circular borders, and a vertical loop handle which is broken at the top. The spout has a round hole for the wick, though there is no evidence of use. The base bears a clear stamp-impressed image of a human foot. en_US
