Roman bronze hook

Roman hook

One incomplete 1st century AD. Dutch Roman mechanical home (Roman villa) ceiling bronze hook. It was used to hang to the ceiling of a room so it could hold a Roman oil lamp. One could give the thing a turn to the left or right to get better light in the corner or to throw better light upon the table.

The bronze chain and the oil lamp are not in this picture than it should have been a complete light set.
