Herodian Oil Lamps, also known as, Knife Parted Lamps, are dated between 37 BCE and 70 CE. They have a wheel made round body and the nozzle was separately made and later attached. These lamps are very seldom decorated and if there are any decorations they would be simple dots or lines appearing on the nozzle. The Herodian lamps are usually found in Judea and Jerusalem, therefore it seems they were mainly used by the Jewish population.. A few were also found in the Galilee and in Transjordan.
