The truth is a light bulbs filament is simply a circuit that glows hot. A thin copper or bronze wire could have been used as the filament thus creating a electric torch. Using the primitive cell technology connected in a battery one could have generated enough electricity to make the wire glow.
Dangerous of course, but it would also be dangerous (LETHAL) to burn a torch in a nearly enclosed space like the pyramids.

It's possible that the baghdad battery was used to generate all of this, but where are the remnance? Where are the wires? They would have been forged somewhere.
