  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Bricks 
  the  making  of  formed  the  chief  labour  of  the  Israelites  in 
  Egypt  (Ex.  1:13,  14).  Those  found  among  the  ruins  of  Babylon  and 
  Nineveh  are  about  a  foot  square  and  four  inches  thick.  They  were 
  usually  dried  in  the  sun,  though  also  sometimes  in  kilns  (2  Sam. 
  12:31;  Jer.  43:9;  Nah.  3:14).  (See  {NEBUCHADNEZZAR}.) 
 
  The  bricks  used  in  the  tower  of  Babel  were  burnt  bricks, 
  cemented  in  the  building  by  bitumen  (Gen.  11:3).
