Stone of the Pregnant Woman

Local nameحجر الحبلى
LocationBaalbek, Lebanon

The Stone of the Pregnant Woman or Stone of the South is a Roman monolith in Baalbek, Lebanon. Together with another ancient stone block nearby, it is among the largest monoliths ever quarried. The two building blocks were presumably intended for the nearby Roman temple complex, possibly as an addition to the so-called trilithon, and are characterised by a monolithic gigantism that was unparallelled in antiquity.
