Hasmonean oil lamp (165-63 B.C.)
This is a pinched style oil lamp that was produced after oil lamps had already developed a closed nozzle (used first in the Hellenistic period). This style looks very similar to Iron Age (from the period of the Israelite monarchy) oil lamps, and the Hasmoneans chose to bring back this style as a way of restoring the Davidic monarchy.
