The sacred stone, conceivably a meteorite, was known in the Roman Empire under Elagabalus who was of Syrian origin and mythological belief. In Greece, it had been named Omphalos often depicted with Apollo seated on it. The Phoenicians seems also to have had their own sacred stone. I wonder if other ancient peoples, prior to that , had their sacred stones. The Greeks and other peoples mentioned above had worshipped their gods, as we know. So what would that sacred stone represent ? SNG Cop 247. Date 116-117 AD.
