dc.descriptionThis Roman lamp came from Petra, a caravan city in southern Jordan. I bought it in Petra (in 2010) which is on the edge of the Jordanian desert (and shown in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). It is of terra cotta with a black painted ‘wash’ perhaps to imitate a more expensive metal lamp. It displays a homosexual act, rather than the heterosexual scene in the other lamp. (200 BC – 400 AD) Plain base.
