Copy of a fresco that comes from a tomb found north of the Physics-Mathematics School in Thessaloniki. The fresco used to cover the long side of the tomb. Against a background of dark ochre there is a two-nozzle lamp in a wreath. The symbolism of the scene is not certain, as it appears in both Christian and ethnic tombs. The scene is framed by red strip.
