To the right of the arches of Porta Nuova there are two Hebrew inscriptions which have been dated to the second half of the thirteenth century, at the glorious height of the Pisan Seafaring Republic. According to a well-founded theory, they are proof of an old cemetery where the people buried close to the city walls – the poorest citizens, perhaps – had their epigraphs engraved into the wall itself. They include that of the Rabbi Yonah bar Avraham.
