Stone of Unction

Pilgrims in the Holy Sepulchre dab oil on, and kiss, the Stone of Unction or Anointing Stone on which (tradition says) Jesus' body was prepared for burial.
John 19:39-40 says, "Nicodemus . . . came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes . . . . They took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices . . . ."
