Chapter Summary

A number of lamps with well-preserved inscriptions in Arabic and Greek can be studied both for their text and their prosopography (V1645, V1641, V1650, V1643, V1651). In addition, Lamp V1648 and the Jarash-style lamps in the corpus were also inscribed. Lamp V1641 consists of the front half of a single spouted, almond-shaped moulded lamp with an inscription on one shoulder. The upper half of lamp V1648 is partially preserved with the remains of script on the lower shoulder when the nozzle is to the left. A partially restored three-nozzle moulded lamp (V1650) has a mirrored shoulder decoration consisting of an addorsed bird and an inhabited vine with a five-lobed leaf, a bunch of grapes, and a pomegranate. V1651 is part of the upper front of a multi-nozzle moulded lamp.
