Beit Natif oil lamps:
These lamps are named after the site of Beit Natif in the southern part of the Judaea, where a workshop was found during excavations of two cisterns. They were imitated throughout the province. The lamps are usually small and some have red slip. These lamps have a bow-shaped nozzle, which has a narrow ridge around its edge. The nozzle is pinched on its sides, giving the effect of volutes and is decorated. The body is round and the shoulders are curved and decorated with a variety of geometric and floral designs. A wide rim surrounds the large filling hole. Mould-made, red slip on upper part and small traces on the base.
