To hold this lamp in our hands is to feel the touch of some ancient hand upon it, to imagine forgotten corridors spring to life with its passing glow and then fade one more into darkness.
Known as the Herodian because of its widespread use during the reign of Herod the Great in Israel (circa 37 BC to 4 BC), this lamp was wheel-made with the spout applied by hand. Thus, every Herodian lamp is slightly different. The type remained in use up to about AD 150 in some parts of the Holy Land
