Discovered in 2006 by Miquel Teixidor, it had been reused in a house on Llana street, between Lli street, Peixateries Velles and Call street. This fragment has been added to the array of fragments of epigraphic steles from the early 14th to the 15th centuries

It is a roughly carved, unpolished block of stone bearing a text comprising five lines slanted left and not respecting the margins. The upper part of the stele is conserved. Owing to its formal characteristics, it has been dated as coming from the last quarter of the 14th century.

The text which has survived until today runs as follows:

Young Sarah
rest in Paradise, daughter of Joseph
of Tena. Was taken away
[in the month of] Adar
