Stamped brick from a tomb chamber. There is a motif of a horse and man-at-arms as well as a phoenix bird. Origninally brightly painted, this tile would have been one of many used to line a tomb wall. Winged horses, warrior guardians, and mythical birds are common motifs on these early examples of pictorial representations. The borders are of fret and lozenge designs.
