The road station of Ad Decimum corresponds with the archaeological area of Castel di Decima where archaeological excavations in the 1970s identified the remains of a settlement covering some 11 hectares that dates to the eighth through sixth centuries BCE. Excavations revealed not only habitation evidence but also several hundred tombs.

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Castel di Decima

The necropolis of Castel di Decima was discovered in 1953 but not systematically excavated until the 1970s. Those excavations revealed numerous tombs of the Orientalizing period that attest to an elite presence and clear evidence of social hierarchy.
