Abstract

The body of the lamp is shaped like a lentil, with a slight point in front of the nozzle and a circular handle that rises from the opposite side. The handle attaches to the ridge that forms a collar above the fill hole. The handle was attached after the body was thrown. There is no surface decoration. The base is a shallow platform that extends below the body of the lamp, having been carved out of the vessel. Black discoloration on the nozzle indicates that this lamp was used. The nozzle and the handle are not aligned.
