In the San Lorenzo's
site, at summer solstice sunset, the sun light produces, through
a Quadrilithon opening (Fig. 1), a "gilded butterfly"
image (Fig. 2). The Quadrilithon is a Trilithon
evolution (trilithon = three stones characterized by two vertical
elements and a lintel, that in this structure is made as a lozenge)
completed by a stone placed across the lower space between the
upright stones. The bright phenomenon appeares from 20:15 (Az.
295.7° - El. 7.6° - GUIDE 7.0.) to 20:35 (Az. 299.1°
- El. 4.4° - GUIDE 7.0.) Summer time.
