The lulav (a cluster of tree branches) and etrog (citron), objects used to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Succot), flank the filling hole on this darom oil lamp. We can recognize the four species of plants required for the lulav (palm, citron, myrtle and willow) and the way they were bound together. The body of this large, three-nozzle lamp displays concentric semicircles supporting a bar; perhaps this is a representation of a menorah or of the gates to the Temple.
