It is the site of the ancient city (polis) of Lappa, which became known in the Middle Ages as Stimpolis ("in the city"), later simply Polis. It took its modern name "Silver City" in the 19th century. The name of the municipality of Lappa of which it is a part is a revival of the ancient name for the city.
Lappa was probably a colony of Tarrha.
It was taken by storm and almost entirely destroyed by the Romans. The emperor Octavian Augustus restored it and in consideration of the aid rendered him in his struggle with Marcus Antonius, he bestowed on the citizens their freedom, and with it the right of coinage.
