Temple of Bacchus

The Temple of Bacchus was one of the three main temples at a large complex in classical antiquity, at Baalbek in Lebanon.

Stone of the Pregnant Woman

The Stone of the Pregnant Woman or Stone of the South is a Roman monolith in Baalbek (ancient Heliopolis), Lebanon. Together with another ancient stone block nearby, it is among the largest monoliths ever quarried by men. The two building blocks were intended for the close-by Roman temple complex − possibly as an addition to the so-called trilith − which was characterized by a monolithic gigantism unparalled in antiquity.
