Strange relic points to lie (7)
I believe the answer is:
'lie' is the definition.
(I know that recline is a more specific form of the action lie)
'strange relic points' is the wordplay.
'strange' is an anagram indicator.
'points' becomes 'ne' (North and East).
'relic' is an anagram of 'recli'.
'to' is the link.
(Other definitions for recline that I've seen before include "Be recumbent" , "Lean back, relax" , "Lie back and relax" , "Adopt horizontal or leaning position" , "sit back ..." .)
