The top half of what may be a tombstone or a mihrab tile, perhaps from a shrine or house. It is painted in a yellow-olive luster with calligraphic inscriptions, both in the wide borders and in the central portion, which is crowned by an arch in the spandrels of which are simple stylized vegetal designs.
