The mystery of the monolith continues. If a few days ago the Utah monolith disappeared, now another similar metal structure has appeared thousands of kilometers away, specifically in northern Romania. It is located on Batca Doamnei Hill, in the city of Piatra Neamt, according to local media.
This new discovery is located a few meters from the well-known archaeological monument of the Dacian Fortresses of the Orastia Mountains, built in the 1st century B.C. and 1st century A.D. as protection against the advances of the Roman Empire. The discovery of this monolith in Romania took place on November 26th when a person who went for a run in the area came across it. It is about four meters high.
At the moment it is not known who installed the monument. However, authorities have already begun the search, arguing that the creator of the monolith would have violated private property. Speculations have not ceased because it points to Mount Ceahlau, a place that historians and anthropologists consider a sacred mountain. According to the legends, it was the refuge of Zalmoxis, ancient God of the Dacians.
The appearance of this new monolith increases the questions about the origin of these structures, even more since a few days ago the one from the Utah desert disappeared. The official explanation is that it was removed by unknown people, according to the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BML).
Or not so unknown?
Wondering what happened to the Utah monolith? Photographer @RossBernards was there when four men dismantled it on Friday night, presumably locals annoyed by the attention and environmental impact. He posted his story and final photos of it on Instagram. https://t.co/3uNpmfAm0q pic.twitter.com/3b1wXXDCYK
