Extremely rare early type of pottery Oil lamp, Roman, 1st. century AD.

The lamp is of the Loeschcke Type IV and displays a scene from the the Education of Achilles by Chiron.

An awesome motif and an important lamp for the historically interested collector or scholar.

Size: 10,7 cm.

Condition: Choice for the rare type, look completely intact, but it's uncleaned in places, which could hide a hairline, we're not certain, and it would be a shame to clean it entirely.

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