Description

Reproduction mould-made pottery lamp of Hellenistic type, with an oval body. The rounded shoulders are decorated in relief with bands of studs and voluted tendrils. Around the filling-hole is a band of short rays. The top of the nozzle is decorated with the head of Hathor. At the rear is a pierced handle. A comparative example, if not identical, can be seen in the British Museum (1985,0501.2). Likely made during the nineteenth or twentieth century.
