A highly interesting and quite rare larger fragment of a burned clay brick - likely a foundation brick, Sumerian/Mesopotamian, ca. UR III, 22th.-20th. century BC.

A beautiful antiquity, so far untranslated and full of Cuneiform letters, which traditionally mentions the local ruler that laid the foundation stone.

Size: 10 cm. high and 7 cm. wide.

Condition: Choice, the cuneiform is very sharp.
