One striking example is the so-called Ephesos Lamp, dated to the early second century B.C.E. Examples were found in quantities as far apart as Athens (Howland, The Athenian Agora, p. 166) and at various sites in Palestine. See Houston R. Smith, “The Household Lamps of Palestine in Intertestamental Times,” Biblical Archaeologist 27 (1964), p. 112, fig. 8; and Nahman Avigad, Discovering Jerusalem (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, 1980), p. 88.
