Forgery Warning

 Forgery Monolith This monolith is a suspected forgery.

We believe that this monolith is a forgery. We collect unconfirmed monoliths from social media accounts, as we investigate these social media reports are often able to verify them. For other monoliths, we learn the monolith may never have existed. These forgeries probably never existed, and we suspect that the media evidence was altered or fabricated. We preserve the listing to document the exposed forgery.

This monolith has such little information about it and while being well viewed, no additional sources or eyewitness accounts have been discovered. Very little is known about this monolith, including if the coordinates are written on the monolith, or if thats the location of the monolith.

For the moment, until more information is available we have listed this monolith as a forgery.
