Terminalia takes its name from the ancient Roman festival held annually in honor of the god of boundary stones, Terminus, during which stones marking the meeting of lands would be consecrated with first harvests, wine, and honey.
Boundary stones and monuments have been observed across history and culture, and in the 19th century became a primary means of establishing triangulation networks used in modern cartography and land surveying.
