Think you might need a scaled picture and a few more to get an accurate Id.
Looks nice though.

To be honest I haven't done anything with it since being picked up. This was found along side a roman villa/ site a year or so ago which has been so rich in revealing roman artifacts,coins etc. But I will give it a clean and repost some pics ::g

It looks like a Roman Greyware base sherd which are quite common on Roman sites.

We've found several similar examples and, as you can see here, the base is proportionately small compared to the main body of the piece.

Nice find ::g

I have something very similar from a 3rd/4th Century site. My piece is Nene Valley colour coated ware. I think your piece is Grey ware unless there is a dark grey slip in the shadows.

Is it possibly part of an oil lamp?

Yep definitely! A search of Roman grey ware shows dozens of similar pot/base examples👍
