      • Tombstone inscription translated from Hebrew by Prof David Kaufmann published in The Historical Associations of the Ancient Burial Ground of the Sephardi Jews 1923 (
        The stone is witness, as also the heap
        To the honoured man who is buried here
        The good qualities which he made his own
        Will speak for him before the Most High.
        An open house he kept by the way,
        For he was generous to the needy and the poor.
        His doings and his dealing with men were truth,
        Truth was familiar in his mouth, his words ever pure.
        Abraham Hhizqiah Carvajal,
        His memory is honoured, blessed with children.
        On Heshvan 26th. He was mown down
        In a ripe age, for his years were full.
        In the year 420 his eyes were dim,
        But the eye of his soul rejoiced to see realms of bliss.
      • From the 1930 Survey:
