Bricks with inscriptions “Dai Viet Quoc quan thanh chuyen” and “Giang Tay quan”, terra cotta, 10th century AD., Hoa Lu district, Ninh Binh province

The bricks are usually rectangular in shape, with red, yellowish red or grayish yellow colors and decorated with Chinese inscriptions such as “Dai Viet Quoc quan thanh chuyen” and “Giang Tay quan”. Dai Viet Quoc quan or Giang Tay Quan were the names of the troops who specialized in producing materials for building the citadel. This indicates that the Dinh and the Anterior Le Dynasties paid special attention to the construction of the citadel which was the center of political power of the country in this period. Therefore, many troops were assigned to focus on building royal architectural monuments.
