Here is a very ornamented lamp featuring a soldier holding a spear with his horse. Notice the several “filling holes”. The lamp could be refilled by merely pouring the oil on the discus and it would drain into one of these holes filling the reservoir. The lack of soot seems to imply an unused lamp or possibly being buried in a wet environment.
