Abstract The discovery of engraved art brings to light new aspects of megalithic monuments in the Levant. During the 4th millennium BC, the inhabitants of Menjez (Akkar, Nothern Lebanon), invested significant time in inhuming their dead in megalithic monuments. The study of 12 tombs in that locality yielded 63 pictograms. This paper underlines the role played by snake iconography.
