Red clay brick, of Lydian type (from dimensions), most commonly used for bonding courses in major stone buildings. Graffito, roughly incised while the clay was still soft: "AVSTALIS DIBVS XIII VAGATVR SIB COTIDIM". 'Austalis has been wandering off on his own everyday for the past 13 days.' The graffito is a rhyming couplet (Austalis dibus tredecim, vagatur sibi cotidim). Found at Newgate Street, St. Paul's, London.
