Stone of the Pregnant Woman
A Roman quarry is located about a half-mile (1 km) south of the temples. A
massive stone, known locally as Hajjar el-Hibla (“Stone of the Pregnant
Woman”), remains in the quarry still attached to bedrock. It is larger than
the stones used in the construction of the Temple of Jupiter. It measures
65.5 feet (20 m) in length, 13 feet (4 m) in width, and 13 feet (4 m) in
height, and weighs over 1,000 tons.
