New menir (?) around Évora




Found by Mário Carvalho, it is a small monolith (1,10 m x 0,40 m x 0, 20 m, above ground), with a quite angular cross-section, erected in an open field.
utm: m=583559; p=4263753.

It can not be clearly classified as a true neolithic menhir; anyway, it can be grouped in a hand-full of similar stones registered in Central Alentejo.

Other small isolated "menhirs": Menires do Alentejo Central, p. 181; 182; 183; 184; 185; 188; 189; 190; 191; 192; 193; 194; 195; 196; 197; 198; 199.
