: Clay oil lamp. Punic variant of the 'cocked-hat'. It consists of a shallow dish with the rim pinched in on three sides to form two nozzles with two wick-holes. It has a small circular base. The surface is undecorated. Blackened patches suggest it may have actually been used as a lamp.

This object is in store, please contact the Museum to arrange to see the object.
