This decorative tile of glazed faience originally ornamented the walls of a palace of King Ramesses III at Tell e-Yahudieh in the Egyptian Delta. This (and other tiles) would once have been included in symbolic friezes illustrating Egypt's triumph over its traditional enemies: Nubians, Libyans, and Asiatics. This fragment shows an Asiatic prisoner. 12th century BCE. From Tell el-Yahudieh, Egypt. (The British Museum, London).
