Oil lamp

Description
This oil lamp is made from a buff earthenware with a black slip and has incised circular markings around the top. It was made in Iron Age Cyprus but unfortunately it is not known where it was found on the island. It is very similar to another Cypriot lamp in RAMM’s collection which was found at Kazafani.
