A girthy stone penis sculpture recently uncovered at an ancient Roman site in Spain measures about 18 inches (46 centimeters) long, which could make it the largest Roman phallus carving ever discovered. The chiseled genitals may have been carved and displayed to ward off bad luck, according to experts.

Archaeologists uncovered the lengthy sculpted shaft at El Higuerón, a site near the town of Nueva Carteya in the Córdoba region of Spain. The Historical Museum of Nueva Carteya, which is leading the excavation of the site, shared the find in an Aug. 19 Facebook post.
