AdminHistoryDonald M. Bailey worked extensively on Greek and Roman Pottery Lamps. His publications include "Greek and Roman Pottery Lamps", (British Museum, September, 1972), "Crowe's Tomb at Benghazi" The Annual of the British School at Athens, Volume 67 (1972), pp. 1-11, and "Excavations at Sidi Khrebish Benghazi (Berenice): Volume III: Part 2: The Lamps" (Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Tripoli, 1985).

The latter of these consists of a catalogue and discussion of the many thousands of lamps and lamp-sherds recorded, of which over 1200 are illustrated. The evidence of a substantial, but derivative, local lamp industry may be compared with the huge volume of imports from Africa, Tripolitania, Greece, Crete and Asia Minor.
