The lamp was used for lighting. It consists of a handle, a spout, a hole for filling it with oil and a disk often bearing a decoration either taken from mythology or from daily life.
The oldest lamps to have been discovered in Tunisia date from the Punic period, althought the largest collection dates to the Roman and early Christien eras.
