On the sign:
Sed nihil est tam incredibile, quod non dicendo fiat probabile, nihil tam horridum, tam incultum, quod non splendescat oratione et tamquam excolatur.
Marcus Tullius Cicero, Paradoxa Stoicorum 46 BC

אין לך דבר מופרך שאמנות הנאום לא תוכל לסבר, ואין לך דבר מחוספס והמוני שאמנות הדיבור לא תוכל להעניק לו ברק ועידון.
מקרוס טוליוס קיקרו, הפרדוקסים של הסטואיקנים, 46 לפנה"ס. מלטינית רנה ליטוין.

In the current plaque appears a quote from the Roman orator and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC), who is considered one of the greatest orators in all of history.
The quote is taken from Paradoxa Stoicorum, which contains 6 articles on Stoic philosophy

Three months later, the same square was photographed, during that action it was discovered that a number of pavements had been removed and other pavements had been placed in their place. In this tile the design is different, see the other tile Click for a larger image

Translation of the text on the sign:
But there is nothing so incredible that by not saying it becomes probable, nothing so horrible, so uncultivated, that it does not shine through speech and seems to be cultivated.
Marcus Tullius Cicero, Paradoxes of the Stoics 46 BC
