The settlement of Histria Pod is located 4 km southwest of the city of Histria. Archaeological excavations were carried out between 1980 and 1991. These have revealed two main periods of occupation, the first one dated to the Late Archaic period, the second one from Late Classical-Early Hellenistic. To this later period belong the major structures discovered at the site: a building with three rooms (one 4x5 m, the others 4x2.5 m), a courtyard and various annexes. The walls and one of the pavements of this structure were built from the local green schist rock. The building was interpreted as a farm in the rural territory of the polis of Histria. Common finds from the building were amphorae (from Thasos, Heracleia Pontica, Sinope), wheel- and hand-made pottery, and pithoi. Not far from the settlement, near a tumulus, was found a Hellenistic relief depicting a gymnasiarch (now in the Museum of Histria).
