Blue faience brick inscribed on four sides. Text is of a funerary nature and dedicated to an individual. Most likely from a tomb. Quite unusual. In his 1879 catalogue the curator Charles Gatty wrote, "Tiles; three blue porcelain cubes (possibly tiles for inlaying?), inscribed with portions of the names and titles of a cook." (p.60).
