Abstract [en]

The long-awaited new volume in the Isthmia series presents the second group of terracotta lamp finds from the American excavations at Isthmia, covering finds from almost four decades of fieldwork. The volume includes lamp finds from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), excavations led by Paul Clement conducted between 1967 and 1987, and from the later excavations of Ohio State University (OSU) directed by Timothy Gregory. These lamps have been found in the excavations of the Sanctuary of Poseidon, especially in the Roman baths located north of the sanctuary, and in fortification structures, graves, and a possible housing area. They include objects from the early sixth century B.C.E. to the 14th–15th centuries C.E., from the Howland types for Greek lamps to Broneer types from the Roman and Byzantine periods. The author, having participated in Clement’s excavations and cooperated with Gregory for years, has an excellent overview of the finds and their find contexts. The volume fills an important gap concerning lamp trade, distribution, and production in the Corinthia, providing a new set of finds that complete the selection in the previously published lamp volumes from Corinth, Isthmia, and Kenchreai.
