The Israel Antiquities Authority Discovers A Rare Bronze Oil Lamp In Jerusalem

Archeologist Ari Levy holds a rare bronze oil lamp, from the Roman Period 70 CE, discovered during excavations in the City of David's Pilgrimage Road by the Israel Antiquities Authority on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, in East Jerusalem. The half grotesque face lamp was intentionally buried for luck and is a common Roman artistic motif, similar to the theatrical mask. Photo by Debbie Hill/UPI
