Description Lamps filled with scented oil were used throughout the Mediterranean region. Intended for use in the home, the lamp could rest on a table, be suspended by chains, or be fitted onto a spiked (pricket) lampstand. On this example, a cross is incorporated into the center of the leaf-shaped handle.
