An imperial necropolis with at least 326 tombs was identified at modern Castel Malnome (Ponte Galeria) in Italy. Archaeological evidence marks these as burials belonging to working-class people of the Roman imperial period, with most graves having either no grave goods or very few. The osteoarchaeological analysis led excavators to speculate that the individuals buried here many have worked in the salt flats.

The imperial necropolis came to be excavated beginning in 2007 as part of a rescue excavation following signs of illegal looting identified by law enforcement.
