Archeologists working at an excavation in Spain uncovered a 2,300-year-old stone phallus last month. The bas-relief representation of a male member was discovered on the cornerstone of a large Roman building under excavation in El Higuerón by a team from the University of Extremadura and the Historical Museum of Nueva Carteya.

The stone penis measures over 18 inches in length and is estimated to date back to the 3rd century when the area was under Roman occupation.

Phallic symbols were not uncommon during the period, but experts were impressed with the size of this particular rock-hard penis.“It was common to put them on the facades of houses, and soldiers carried small phallic amulets as symbols of virility.
