An unloved tomba not far from Santu Antine. It's not signposted, but is easily visible from the road running south east from the easterly railway crossing near Torralba. After the crossing, you go over the river on a bend, and when you see a track to the left, stop - the tomba is in the field just after the turning.

We climbed over a wire fence to get access.

The stele, though weathered, is impressive. About 3m high, with relief carving and that pink tinge to the stone we'd seen at several other tombas. The area is quite overgrown, and it's hard to work out much of the burial chamber.
