A unique Herodian period oil lamp from the first century used during the time of Jesus in the southern “Darom” style.
These Herodian oil lamps are very unique because this style was made only in Jerusalem, and was only in use for about a hundred years. This is the type of oil lamp that was used in the central hill country of Judea during the time of Jesus. The round body of these lamps was made on a wheel, while the distinctive nozzle was made as a separate piece, which was then attached, giving the lamp a unique look known as a “knife-parted” oil lamp. This type of lamp was made exclusively in Jerusalem, but has been discovered in excavations throughout the region because Jews who came to Jerusalem for pilgrimages during holidays would take these oil lamps as a souvenir from the holy city. These oil lamps come in various sizes and styles, sometimes with decorations and sometimes plain, making this a unique souvenir for travelers from the first century until today.
Very unique and decorated
