The existence of lanterns traces back to 1500 B.C. in the days of King David and the Iron Age, where Canaanite Oil Lamps were used for nearly a thousand years. Ancient Roman versions made with Terra Cotta and using olive oil were found in Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other notable archeological sites dating back to 509 B.C. Herodian oil lamps were also used in Jerusalem during the time of Jesus, and are still a sought after souvenir for visitors to the holy land.
