According to R. Reich, Head of the Scientific Archives section of the
Israel Antiquities Authority the
largest stones in the Ancient Middle East are neither from the pyramids (200
tons) nor
the Western Wall in Jerusalem (400-600 tons) but from Ba'albek in Lebanon,
their weight
being 800 tons, thus the 200 ton stones from Egypt pale in comparsion. As
for the assertion that it was not until the 20th century that mankind was
capable of such feats; the Russians cut a stone weighing approx. 1,250
tons in the 18th century for a podium dedicated to Peter I in St. Petersburg.
