"Oldest" Jewish toilet found in Cologne, Germany

“This is the window through which feces are going to get out” reads the Hebrew inscription on what experts believe may be the oldest Jewish toilet ever found. The inscription was discovered on a stone lintel of a 13th century house near the city's medieval synagogue.

 Behind the wall with the inscription, archaeologists found a six-foot deep pit. “This type of inscription has never been found anywhere in the world before or since,” said Prof. David Assaf, from the Department of Jewish History at the University of Tel Aviv.
