Description
Late Firmalampe from workshop FELIX, poorly executed (ledge and mold impression, off-center filling hole, no airhole, degenerate nozzle-termination rim, signature upside down), though fabric suggests still northern Italian (or e.g. Pannonian?). Based on discussion by Bailey (BML II, pp. 274-275) our lamp probably belongs in the early to mid-2nd century.
