These four-spouted lamps are among the earliest vessels specially made to be lamps. Older still are the simple bowls from the Chalcolithic period (fourth millennium BCE) with telltale burn marks on their rims (sometimes in depressions), which show that these bowls were used as lamps. Four-spouted lamps continued to be made less frequently in the early MB II period until about 1750 BCE.
