Summary

The 14th century saw Rabbi Salomón shine, a doctor, astronomer and exegete of great worth, born in Seville where he also died in 1345. His funeraral stele, engraved on a fragment of Roman column, was discovered in 1580 in the Jewish cemetery at Carne Gate

The column, broken into three parts, was later taken to the door of the cathedral Campanilla; then it went to the flight of steps of the Colombine library and finally to the Seville Archaeological Museum where it is currently conserved.
