This white marble altar stone has raised half-round moulding and a great deal of graffiti all over its surface.

The rectangular altar stone with a sunken central area is common in the altar stones of the late middle ages. It is difficult to know what it rested on. Generally, these altar stones were supported by small columns – or a single one – of diverse forms.

It came from the church of Sant Salvador de la Vedella, where it was repurposed as a step to enter the place of worship.
