Oil lamp Herodian


Known as the Herodian because of its widespread use during the reign of Herod the Great in Israel (circa 37 BC to 4 BC), this lamp was wheel-made with the spout applied by hand. Thus, every Herodian lamp is slightly different. The type remained in use up to about AD 150 in some parts of the Bible Land. This lamp is the best choice for those wishing to have a lamp like those most common in Judea during the ministry of Jesus. Date of the lamp is about 50 BC to AD 50. 

Size: about 2 1/2'' x 3 1/4''; 6,5 x 8,3 cm
