Superb Roman Lamp Showing Pan Coupling with Goat. Roman, late 1st-2nd century AD. Lamp neatly crafted, with short ovate nozzle, flanked by paired scrolls; also labrys-like motif flanking discus. On a raised dais, Pan is intimately involved with a shaggy-coated, curled horn goat, who turns head back to regard him. Moulding sharp and clear, the lamp almost pristine, with most of thin red slip intact. Rare type! BMC --; Pompeii --. Length: 3-3/8". Roman decadence at its best!
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,200.

Realized $1,610
