The lamp is of the Loeschcke Type IV and displays a scene with Hercules fighting the Hydra on it's discus. An awesome motif and an important lamp for the historically interested collector or scolar.

Size: 11,5 cm.

Condition: Nice for the rare type, a few cracks restored nicely and intact with nothing missing.

Provenance: From a Rheinland-Pfalz collection, 1970-1999.
