Roman Oil Lamp

Roman Oil Lamp with human face decoration

You are getting closer to this face than people looking at it in the Museum.
These photos were taken with a professional camera and the details are amazing.
I hope you enjoy them

The top of the Oil Lamp

A marking in the material of the Oil Lamp

The face on the Oil Lamp. I wonder if this was based on a real person if so we are looking at a man
from over 2000 years ago. How cool is that! It almost looks mummyfied.

The bottom part of the face, this looks like a beard, and there is something inside the right side hole.
It can't be seen when you look at the article. Is it a wick?
