The story of the mysterious metal monolith that was discovered in Utah, before disappearing, has taken an even more bizarre turn.
Reports coming out of Romania suggest that an identical monolith – possibly even the same one – has appeared in the city of Piatra Neamt.
The mysterious metal structure was found a few metres from the well-known archaeological landmark the Petrodava Dacian Fortress.
The Dacian fortress Petrodava represents the oldest historical monument in Piatra Neamţ. It is believed to have been destroyed by the Romans in 2nd century AD but the remains can still be seen today in the form of parts of the city wall.
The shiny triangular structure reportedly has a height of about twelve or thirteen feet, and one side faces Mount Ceahlau, known locally as the Holy Mountain.
It is one of the most famous mountains in Romania, and is listed as one of the seven natural wonders of the country.
Neamt Culture and Heritage official Rocsana Josanu said: “We have started looking into the strange appearance of the monolith. It is on private property, but we still don’t know who the monolith’s owner is yet. It is in a protected area on an archaeological site.”
She added: “Before installing something there, they needed permission from our institution, one that must then be approved by the Ministry of Culture.”
The Romanian object was first spotted on Thursday, November 26. The Utah object was first seen on November 18 and reported missing on November 27.
The US Bureau of Land Management said in a statement on Facebook: ”We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the 'monolith' has been removed from Bureau of Land Management public lands by an unknown party.”
