Check post #10. The stuffings act as a counterbalance to the olive's natural acidity.

I don't think we are ever going to document the "Aha!" moment for stuffed olives, because the Romans were stuffing stuff with stuff since 749BC. Who knows when it first happened. But we now have documentation back to the 18th century at least.
