Description

Mold-made oil lamp with flat base, conical body, one vertical, ribbed handle and a volute nozzle with two ornamental volutes flanking the wick hole. The filling hole is set at the disc’s center. The rim of the disc is ribbed. The concave part of the disc is decorated with two opposing cornucopias strapped with ribbons; they are filled with stylized grapes ending in wild goat heads. Cornucopias are a dear subject to the representational tradition associated with deities such as Isis and Tyche (Fortune). It was retrieved from the western cemetery of the ancient city Aptera.
