Maccabean style ancient oil lamp discovered in Jerusalem.

This is a pinched style oil lamp that was produced after oil lamps had already developed a closed nozzle. These style lamps were used first in the Hellenistic period.

This style looks very similar to Iron Age (from the period of the Israelite monarchy) oil lamps. The Hasmoneans chose to bring back this style as a way of restoring the Davidic monarchy.

  • Excellent Condition.
  • Found in Jerusalem.
  • Shipped direct from the Holy Land.
