Study Guide Avoda Zara 50

If one finds rocks beside the idol Markolis (Mercury), in what case should one assume that the rocks came from the idol and would be forbidden to benefit from them? If roads are paved by non-Jews who took rocks from there, can we walk on those roads as the rocks were canceled out by the non-Jews who paved the roads with them or are these rocks considered “tikrovet avoda zara” – something used for worship which then can never be canceled? The criteria for what can be considered a tikrovet is discussed. The gemara goes off on a tangent about types of work in the field that can/can’t be done in the shemita year and on Chol Hamoed.
