La Pierre-Levée (Poitiers) (Burial Chamber) by Chance La Pierre Levée as a banquet table for local scholars who, 'when they have nothing else to do, pass the time by climbing up onto the stone and banqueting there with large quantities of bottles, hams and pastries, and inscribing their names on the capstone with a knife'. Illustration from 1561 in Georg Hoefnagel's “Civitates orbis terratum”
