(Roman Column 47 km)

This monument stands alone in the center of the Beqaa plain halfway between Baalbeck and the town of Chlifa. The eighteen-meter column, with a Corinthian capital, stands on four huge stone steps. A plaque which was once on the north face has been removed and with it went all information about the column. Local legend associates it with St. Helena, but it is most likely a funerary monument.
