This is another early “molded type” of lamp with decorations on the shoulder and evidence of a seam on the side. The molded lamps began to be produced in about the 2nd century B.C. The difference in preservation, again, may be due to how it was buried in rubble and not because of longevity. So sometimes an earlier lamp may be cleaner or have more distinct features since it was preserved better because of how it was buried rather than when.
