Dolmen dell’Accettula (di Accetta Piccola o Dolmen Piccolo)
Statte (TA)
Object Type: Dolmen
Staus: Present
Latitude: 40.56400
Longitude: 17.18902
Description: Mediterranean scrub dominates the area where it stands. The dolmen is hidden in the undergrowth of the pine forests, on the border of a cave. The area is fenced up. The megalith is the biggest in the Statte area; it is situated at about 3 Km from the dolmen Leucaspide. It stands in the undergrowth not far from the cave and it is made of a chamber and a dromos. The capstone of the chamber is not perfectly parallel to the ground; it strongly leans towards the North. On the North it lies on a monolithic vertical slab, which is almost completely buried underground; on the South it lies on another monolithic slab buried for half its height. On the West it is supported by a monolithic block of smaller dimension.  According to the bibliographic data the dromos that was originally supposed to complete the structure is not visible any longer. What we can see, on the other hand, is the human intervention; support poles to guarantee the stability of the structure. We can also see the presence of black scabs, particularly on the internal wall of the West orthostate.
