    Dear Mark Schuler,

    the lamps you found are so-called “North Jordan” lamps type, dated (mainly on stylistic criteria, to be precise) to the late 5th and the 6th centuries AD. Their manufacturing centre might have been Beit Ras (Capitolias of the Decapolis) where hundreds of them were found. Even in our own dig at Beit Ras last May we found several of thgem.
    Here is the literature: K. da Costa, Economic Cycles in the Byzantine Levant: the Evidence from Lamps at Pella in Jordan. Levant 42 (2010): 70-87.
