A Brazilian lady mourns over my death. I am lying in the depression of the mortice of the upturned capstone that once sat on the tall upright Taula stone nearby.

It has been said that this mortice has been enlarged and was possibly adapted to form a sarcophagus in Roman times. I very much doubt this, as I demonstrate that it really is too small a depression for a human body.

How when and why this stone was removed and placed upside down like this remains a mystery.
