A lion's head serves as the spout of this handsome oil lamp. It has a sieve-top for the oil to be filtered through, a flat base, striations on the side and a short handle. This type of pottery flourished in this period, developing into a unique style independent of the Greek mainland. This lamp attests to the skill that the Greek artists possessed, exhibiting a smooth finish and fine detailing. - (PF.5388)
