Prolagus commented on the word luxia arrabiosa
Luxia Arrabiosa ("Luxia the furious") was a wealthy and niggardly woman, who owned large cornfields in Prabanta but did not give anything to the needy.
God punished her by turning her and her belongings into stone*:
- su procu de Luxia (Lucia's pig), in Siris;
- su pei de su boi (The ox's foot), sa turra (the ladle), and sa cullera (the spoon), in Pompu;
- su furconi (the pitchfork), su forru (the oven) and su stabi (the porch), near Morgiongori.
* Sardinia is a very windy island, and there are many wind-carved rocks with bizarre shapes.
