The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Amplero.

In Letta's report, several distinct archaeological sites are identified within the larger area of Amplero. These include the necropolis of Cantone, the fortified sacred area on the hill of La Giostra, and the fortification wall of M. Annamunna. Twenty-six tombs were documented at the Cantone site. These tombs break out into four typological groups and are dated from roughly the sixth to the first century BCE. There are some sporadic early Imperial finds. The fortified sacred area of La Giostra presents evidence for two sacred buildings, a cistern, and a stips votiva
