Wicks for the Lamps
#1
I've been looking around for alternatives to the cotton wick for Roman oil lamps and have found no natural substitutes that the Romans would have had access to. I know that there is a possibility that they had access to cotton near the later Empire, but are there any thoughts on what they would have used in the Republic and Early Empire?
