Historical Examples of baetyl
This pillar can hardly be anything but a baetyl, or sacred stone.
At the foot of one of the trilithons was found a baetyl 51 inches in height, now in the museum at Valletta.
It has been suggested that this pit was made to hold the base of the cult-object, whether it was a baetyl or an idol.
