The remains of a panel of glazed bricks were found by G. Smith in a building of Nimrud that he ientifies as "South-East Palace," which nowdays we should most presumably identify with the building later catalogued as "South-East Palace (Assyrian Building AB; south of the Nabû Temple), as suggested by Joan and David Oates (Oates and Oates 2001, p. 130 and 278 n. 53). Smith stated that the bricks showed traces of a text "[... I] massacred [...]" [...] GAZ.MEŠ. The material around the remains is dated to Shalmaneser III. The fragments were not available for the study at the moment of Grayson's edition and the text was not published.
