      • At Presenzano, work undertaken along the Tora-Venafro provincial road (at km 4+460, locality of Pozzo), brought to light a number of rooms that were partially investigated. They were part of a building complex which was occupied with varying intensity from the late Republican period to at least the 5th century A.D. An interesting hoard was recovered from one of the rooms, in part still contained in a jar, comprising late Roman bronze coins, unfortunately in an extremely corroded condition. The presence was confirmed, at the foot of the present historic centre of Presenzano, of a residential area of considerable size. Probably a pagus of ancient Rufrae or a large rural settlement, it had a certain continuity of occupation that was particularly well attested between the 3rd-5th century A.D. The tombs excavated at the end of 2000, slightly to the west near the masseria Durante, can be associated with this settlement.
