The bronze lamp hangs from a linked chain and bent hook, the main component in the shape of a serpent with an upraised head and tail. The head supports a flat dish that held the oil, where a small wick would have provided the flame. The serpent has an open mouth with pronounced teeth and extended tongue, the upper half of the body is incised with circles representing scales, and the belly side is ribbed with projecting bands.
