The large and varied collection of ancient lamps bequeathed by Mrs. Miriam Schaar-Schloessinger of New York to the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is classified and published in this volume. The 683 lamps (some of glass, bronze, and stone), 3 lamp molds and 11 lamp-fillers range in date from the Archaic Greek to the Islamic periods and in provenance from North Africa to India. The descriptions are accompanied by photographs and, in some cases, drawings. This volume is a useful reference work for students, archaeologists and aficionados of ancient lamps.
