I hear ya. No, doesn't make sense to carve a round column in situ, and it's hard to imagine why that cut was made.

For others who are interested, here is the pic Racho is talking about.

From what I've gathered, "they" say ancient man had nothing but time to do these things, and being obsessed with religious beliefs he felt compelled to spend a lifetime erecting altars to gods (most everything unusual is called an altar of some sort). Hence the jokes like - if they find a bathtub in 3000 yrs they'll think it was a sacrificial container.
