Iki adet testi parçasinin üzerine "Jacob” ibaresinin kazinmis ve duvara menorah deseninin çizilmis olmasi, dükkân sahibinin Musevi kimligine isaret etmektedir Museviisimlerine ve sembollerine daha çok dogu taraftaki, bilhassa Havra''nin ön avlusunun güney girisine yakin olan, dükkânlarda rastlanmaktadir.
Shop E6-8 made up a substantial multi-room unit whose owners worked with dyes or paints. E6 and E7 contained stone mortars and quantities of yellow, orange-red, and blue paints and dyes, which were stored in reused pipe sections and probably in bags. The shop also had a variety of drinking vessels including an unusual bronze jug for heating hot drinks (known as an authepsa). The name "Jacob” scratched on two jars, and a menorah graffito carved into the wall, may reflect the Jewish identity of the owner.
