The name "caciocavallo" is related to the fact that cheese forms were bounded in twos and then straddled across wooden beams or "a cavallo" to mature.  The production of caciocavallo was mentioned as far back as 500 BC by the Greek philosopher, Hippocrates.

Caciocavallo Silano DOP is produced in Southern Italy from cow's milk and was officially recognized as a DOP in 1993.
