Discus motif: Barbera and Petriaggi 1993, p. 214, no. 175 (Museo Nazionale Romano).
Circular discus with central figural relief, one filling hole center left and one center right, and narrow rounded framing ring. Shallow relief of female bust left with wavy hair pulled back around head and down into chignon, traces of pearl necklace under chin, and dress hanging in folds across chest; traces of headdress on crown. Details are blunt (much more so than shoulder design), some overlap with framing ring (lower right), and faint border below image is tilted down right. Copy (inverted) from worn model of type of Tyche with turreted crown.
One large sherd preserves ca. 75% of lamp but missing back including entire handle. Slight, sparse abrasion and pitting; clean breaks.
