This chapter addresses the following questions: What do archaeological finds tell us about aniconic standing stones in their variety of geometric forms? Are there particular contexts and cults in which we are more likely to find stelai that were worshipped by ancient Greeks? Can we detect certain patterns or recurring features in our records? Is there an affinity between such wrought monuments and the completely unwrought? It also considers possible resemblances between the semi-figural and the standing stone, in particular when the two types are found in analogous cultic contexts and/or have similar functions.
