Oldest Jewish archaeological evidence on the Iberian Peninsula

There was a Sephardi exhibition at the National Library in Madrid recently, which had some old but not securely dated Jewish inscriptions (I should check the catalogue), but this inscription from Portugal is interesting as the context it was found re-used in is well dated to AD 390. The excavators also feel they have unique evidence showing Jews and non-Jews (either pagan or Christian) living together at a Roman villa.
