Karolina Truzs [1]


Roman everyday objects were often decorated with motives of the aquatic environment. Very interesting group of such a artifacts are roman oil lamps found in the Roman provinces Germania Superior and Germania Inferior. They are characterized by repetition of iconographic themes connected to river or sea navigation. This paper deals with an attempt of interpretation connection between oil lamps and their decorations.
