This work constitutes a catalogue treatment of 123 Late Antique oillamps from the storage depot of the Roman Provincial Collection of the Archaeological Museum in Split.* The oil lamps have been preserved either entirely or in pieces. Most of them originated in Salona, one is from Sutomore in Montenegro, while the remaining examples are from various sites in central Dalmatia. A typological analysis is based on the classification of Late Antique oil lamps devised by J. W. Hayes. The museum examples are generally standard North African oil lamp types, dated from the early fourth century to roughly the year 550. The most common types are Hayes IB (47 examples) and Hayes IIA (34 examples). Besides the standard types, the analysis has shown that the collection contains 18 Late Antique lamps which are not encompassed by Hayes’ classic classification. These may be characterized as imitations which emerged in thus-far indeterminate workshops.
