This work contains catalogue treatment of 114 oil-lamps from the storage

depot of the Roman Provincial Collection and 20 additional pieces from

the permanent exhibition of the Archaeological Museum in Split.1 These

are oil-lamps from Late Antiquity, preserved in whole or in fragments,

which have Early Christian symbolic motifs rendered in relief on the

discus. Most often these are monograms, crosses, lions, hounds, hares,

cockerels, palm fronds and biblical scenes. The typological classification

established in this paper adheres to the division done by John W. Hayes,

so in this regard the oil-lamps have been dated to a period ranging from

the beginning of the fourth century to the roughly the year 550.
