Not On View
This lamp is fashioned of a reddish clay fabric. The body is shaped as a thick-walled short, squat jar with rounded base, short neck and wide mouth. Around the center a disc-like collar once ran around the entirety of the lamp, but most has broken off and is missing, leaving only a small segment intact and one seperate fragment. The exterior bears traces of red slip.
