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.
