Gul streg

This small relief was to be seen in the handle of an oil lamp.

Same as the previous image. There are more of these reliefs, but they are difficult to find.

Some are in: Gerhard Zimmer: Römische Berufdarstellungen. DAI, Berlin 1982.

L.A. Moritz: Grain-Mills and Flour in Classical Antiquity. Oxford, 1958
