Roman North African


ALEXANDRIA:
Large numbers of lamps with the typical "North African" style were made in workshops along the Mediterranean coast of Africa in the 5th Century AD. Tunisia and Carthage were probably the center of the trade, although evidence now suggests Alexandria, in Egypt, may also have been a major production center in North Africa. This example features the monogram "XPI", which is a Greek rendition of "Christ", and was probably at least as common as the symbol of the cross itself for many centuries.
(4.5" x 3").

CARTHAGE:
Another North African style, this features a running lion on the discus. Animals were popular subjects on the lamps, and many employed very similar decorative motifs as had the earlier Roman lamps.
(4.5" x 3").
