More light for your home!

The light a single oil lamp gives off is not that bright. Everyone who ever used one will know that. But what did Romans do when they wanted more light in their homes? They seldom lit up several different oil lamps like it is often shown in movies. They usually just used an oil lamp with several wholes for wicks. The object at hand for example has three separate wick holes. That ultimately means that it has three times the lighting abilities of a normal oil lamp. Sometimes you could even find lamps with more than three holes. Four, five, six and up to twelve holes are not really all that out of the ordinary. As a consequence you need more oil to maintain three flames simultaneously.

If you too think that one flame is not enough then this is just the lamp for you! It will not only give off more light but it will also make you feel like a wealthy Roman citizen enjoying his special lamp while the others have to sit in the dark... a bit splendor must be allowed!
