Slavetinsky menhir, lidove pojmenovany jako Baba, neni tak znamy jako jeho vetsi a slavnejsi bratricci. Misto, kde se nachazi, je vsak velmi malebne a za hezkeho pocasi skyta krasne pohledy na Stredohori.

Slavetinsky menhir - Baba / The Beldame

Slavetinska baba se nachazi v polich mezi obci Slavetin a jeji zaleznicni zastavkou, pod lipou nedaleko maleho rybnika.
Materialem menhiru je zelezity piskovec, podle nekterych zdroju je kamen puvodem z udoli Deberskeho potoka.
Vyska menhiru je asi 1,7 m, hmotnost se odhaduje na 1,9 t. Doklady o kamenu pochazeji z let 1932, 1953 a 1981. Menhir dlouho unikal pozornosti odborniku, protoze v 17. stoleti byl do nej vsazen velky kriz - v teto podobe byl objekt vyobrazen jeste v roce 1932. Po druhe svetove valce byl kriz z kamene vylomen.
V roce 1896 zde byl udajne provaden vyzkum, ktery odhalil, ze kamen je hluboko zasazeny, pricemz jeho podzemní cast je temer stejne velika jako viditelna cast nadzemni. Pobliz mely byt nalezeny zbytky volutove, vypichane a snurove keramiky a ruznych keltskych ozdob.
The menhir is located next to the field path between Slavetin village and it's railway station, under the lime tree near the small pond. It consists of sandstone, it's height is about 1.7m, weight is estimated to 1.9t. There used to be an iron cross on the top of the stone - it has been broken off after the world war II.
