 The Cyrene is a Late Roman-Early Christian lamp. The original this lamp is modeled after was made in North Africa in the late 5th century AD. It features a Latin fourchee style cross on the nozzle area, and three triangular shapes with dots/circles in the center around the filling hole. These may form a second cross with the first cross making the lower part of it. They may also be symbolic of the Holy Trinity.
