That's hard to say, Steve. There are many types of bread that are braided like those. Probably the most well-known braided loaves are Challah bread.

From my imperfect observation. I would say it is:
1) a lattice - that is the way the strands of dough are folded
2)leavened - which is the addition of a rising agent (usually yeast) to produce gas which makes the bread rise and makes the texture more open (usually softer)
3) made from wheat - from the texture of the outside
4) brioche - (From the colour, the texture and the positioning of an egg in the photo) makes it richer with the addition of eggs (and I think some butter) so a lot more cake like and more similar to a croissant in nutrition
5) I assume the flakes are almond so it may also include an almond paste in the spread between the lattice. This will make it much sweeter.

In a shop I would label it as an "almond brioche lattice"

This one is similar but not exactly the same: (Oh yes! Brioche also has milk in it)

I'm puzzled therefore I think.
