A little taster of what I have been writing about over the past couple of weeks. Dating to the later periods of Egyptian history, these are referred to as 'Osiris Bricks', not to be confused with 'Osiris Beds'. Very little is known about their origins, probably only thirteen of them are today in existence, and they would serve as a receptacle for soil and grain, the germinating grain representing the resurrection of the god Osiris.
