A brick-field (Pliny , Pliny H. N. vii. 57). A painting at Thebes in Egypt represents an Egyptian brick-field, and shows exactly the same process as still pursued; the men at the bottom are digging up the brick earth, and loading it in baskets, while the one at the top lays the bricks already made in wooden moulds. See Fictilé.
