Menhir Pivataro
Tricase (LE) - Tutino
Object Type: Menhir
Staus: Present
Latitude: 39.93655
Longitude: 18.35119
Description: It is situated at the centre of a crossroad, on a circular base covered by stone. The megalith shows signs of deterioration due to both atmospheric phenomena and numerous demolitions. Today we have two overlapping fragments; they have been roughly fixed and they are marked by a deep fracture line from 5 to 9 cm wide, at 0.57 m from the base. The restoration dates back to the end of the 90s (‘96-‘97). It is made of local stone and it has a cross engraved on the East side at 0.83 from the base and a cross on the West side at 0.90 m from the base.  
Condition: Worn
Dimension: Altezza m 1.23. Faccia Nord m 0.32 x Faccia Est m 0.40.
Direction: Asse lungo Nord-Sud
Historical Notes: Cosimo De Giorgi did not mention this menhir, despite it being located a short distance from the missing menhir of Sant’Eufemia. Locals know it as ‘La colonna de Santu Linardu’ (The pillar of Saint Leonard, N.d.T.) from the name of a small church dedicated to Saint Leonard that used to stand nearby. The name Pivataro (affected by meteorism) is associated to the popular belief that horses, donkeys and mules with a swollen belly were tied around this stele. The effort of going round the monolith would help these animals to get rid of their gas retention.
Legal Condition: Public authority (municipal).
