An ancient settlement on the right bank of the river Astura, Satricum has a mixed heritage of Latins and Volscians. In 499 B.C. Satricum was a member of the Latin League, but was under Volscian control in 488 B.C. The site is noted for its sanctuary of Mater Matuta.

The inscription known as the Lapis Satricanus (CIL I2 2832a), naming Publius Valerius Poplicola, was found at the site in 1977 by C.M. Stibbe, attesting to the relationships between Satricum and Rome in the Republican period. The inscription dates to the late sixth or fifth century BC.
