Menhir Trice
Muro Leccese (LE)
Object Type: Menhir
Staus: Present
Latitude: 40.09791
Longitude: 18.33969
Description: The monolith, standing on a quadrangular pedestal of rock, has rounded corners and a cross engraved on the South facing side. It is included in a traffic island at the intersection between three roads and it faces the Church of Santa Marina.
Condition: Good
Dimension: Altezza: m 4.30; Faccia Nord m 0.34 x Faccia Est m 0.44
Direction: Asse lungo Nord-Sud
Historical Notes: Surveyed at the end of the 19th century by De Giorgi, who examined it together with L, Maggiulli and determined its location a few metres away from the place where we can see it today. The monolith underwent several manipulations and it was knocked down in 1949 to facilitate traffic. It was later relocated on site on part of the same rock where it was implanted in the first place. Knocking down and restoration of the menhir date back to 1950 and 1953; this intervention is visible at approximately ¼ from the base. The menhir was relocated from via Toselli to an adjacent little square, on condition that a plaque was placed on the original site  recording the date of transport and the original position with such inscription: ‘Original location of the Menhir of Muro Leccese- 1950’.
