Byzantine Antiquities

Byzantine, Syro-Palestinian, Terracotta Oil Lamp, 7th - 8th Century A.D.

Click for a larger photo
This rare type is similar to flat-topped round Byzantine lamps discovered in Jerash, bearing Arabic inscriptions with dates from the eighth century, the name of the potter, and Jerash as the place of manufacture (Schloessinger 578 and 579). Those lamps are clearly different, but the similarity may indicate the date of our lamp. Perhaps the Tel Aviv source points to a Palestina Prima origin.

Anawati C250 (rounder, also with arc and pellet ornamentation, but arcs from both mouth and shoulder); 8.3 cm long, Good condition, two cracks radiating from spout, soot on nozzle, mold-made, ovoid shape, convex nearly flat diskus ornamented with pellets within arcs from shoulder, knife-pared conical handle, raised rim around filling hole, raised rim at shoulder to from handle to nozzle, convex side above sharp carination, flat bottom with ring base; from a Florida dealer, purchased in Tel Aviv in 1971; $120.00 (Ä102.00)

Click for a larger photo
Jewelry with these flat backed disk like pellet globules was popular across the Byzantine empire and with the barbarian tribes to the north. Examples have been found from Sicily to Hungary and Northern Bulgaria. Most or all of this jewelry was probably made in the Eastern Mediterranean, possibly in Syria. Examples have been found with coins from Tiberius II (578 - 582) to Heraclius (610- 641).
