Mould-made pottery lamp with a voluted nozzle (end lost), and a base-ring. The deep-sunk discus has a flat moulded rim, and a triple-grooved channel between the discus and the nozzle; pierced with an air-hole. The central filling-hole is surrounded by concentric mouldings. The steep sides of the discus are decorated with two dogs (one crouching, one leaping), two seated goats, and two standing sheep. Covered with an orange to brown slip.
