Lamp

L 2977. P.L. 0.094; W. 0.071; H. 0.085. Part of handle missing.

Soft, buff, micaceous clay; dull, orange-red glaze.

The flat rim slopes slightly to exterior and is decorated with relief dots; body plain. Nozzle rounded and set deep into rim, without volutes. Base plain.

The rim decoration and the handle resemble those of Broneer's type XX (as G 143-146); the lack of decoration on the body and the shape of the rim, however, suggest that this lamp is a precursor of Broneer's type XXVIII lamps (as M 283-284; cf. L 14). Perlzweig.
