Found this at a thrift store. The employees, nor I didn’t know what it was. So I bought it. A small bit of research and I can across the Roman oil lamps. I’m not an expert on ancient Roman bronze so I don’t know whether it’s old or a replica. It measures 5 3/4” long with a 2 7/8” width, also weighs 337 grams. It has a good amount of graining and oxidation to the patina. Some small hole/slits (from age?). The top has what appears to be a couple soldiers or gladiators in there armor with there weapons and shields. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
