The Prophet Jeremiah raged against the Hebrews for creating a Tophet and placing ‘abominations’ in the Temple at Jerusalem. 'Abomination of Desolation’ was term used throughout the Old & New Testaments to describe forbidden cult objects. The Book of the Law says that the Stele of Revealing would also be called by the same title.

We know that Crowley had knowledge of the Carthaginian ritual figure and Mathers’ theories concerning its similarity with the Secret Seal of Solomon. He would also, given his fundamentalist upbringing, have been aware of the association in the Old Testament between a Tophet and the 'Abomination of Desolation’. Reports of the recent discovery of carved stelae at a Tophet on Sicily may have inspired him to give the Memorial Pillar at Cefalu its intriguing shape.

I honestly love this portion in Fallen Idol by Silence Iz Mine.
