Entry in the National Monuments Database

Description: In a low-lying situation in grassland, on the former grounds of the Apostolic Nunciature. The site comprises a flat-topped mound, roughly circular in plan (diam. 19m; H 2.5m). There is an elongated, waterlogged hollow along the S section of the site that may have been a source for the mound material. Along the SE section of the mound is a rectangular block of granite (L 0.76m; Wth 0.56m; H 0.4m) with a socket on the upper surface that may have held a cross or sign.
