The Stone of the Pregnant Woman is a Roman monolith lying near the Baalbek complex in Heliopolis Syriaca (modern Lebanon). It is one of the largest monoliths in the world. The stone and other nearby monoliths were presumably intended to become part of the Temple of Jupiter, several hundred metres away from their quarry.
