dc.description Late Byzantine, Provincia Syria-Palaestina, c. 400 – 500 C.E.
dc.description The ovoid oil lamp has a large, rimmed, round hole on one end and a small one at the smaller end. A rim runs around both holes, connected by a straight line with three diagonal raised lines on either side. The sides are lined by Byzantine-Greeks letters, translating to, “the light of Christ shines to all.” The base is a rimmed circle. There is black residue around the spout. The piece is dirty and chipped.
