Monster: bearded simian
The "clay apes" created over an aeon ago by civic minded mages to serve and protect the interests of the elite of the day. Nowadays they pop up only rarely guarding perhaps an aristocrat's tomb or some crumbled storehouse. Essentially automatons, the bearded simians are supposedly powered by black mercury enabled by crystals in adjacent areas.
