1. An upright stone or pillar, having an inscription or a sculptured surface, serving as a monument. Also called stela.
2. The central core of the stem or root of a vascular plant.

On such stele,
A man called Jesus
Is said to have been flogged
Many – many - years ago.

(Currently in the Basilica of Santa Prassede - Rome)

Now you've done it! I want to see that church. When this current financial mess finally ends, my next trip will be Roma - again.
