Near the settlement Moni, Selino Province, we meet a very mysterious monument, unique in Crete. It is a small conical pyramid with a circumference of 16m and a height of 4.6m, which is carved in the soft limestone. The interior has a carved room with dimensions 2.20m x 2.10m and height 1.40m. This conical pyramid was possibly used as a tomb in the Roman period and was probably linked to the town of Eliros.
