Roman ruins 3 km
N of Volubilis. These consist of remains of a castellum
occupied in the 1st and 2d c. A.D. by the cohors I Asturum et Callaecorum and rebuilt in the 3d c. by the
cohors IV Tungrorum, and indistinct traces of a settlement S of this camp. The area to the W and S is extremely rich in ruins of Roman farms and agricultural
villages; to the E, on the foothills of the Jebel Zerhoun, are quarries that were worked in antiquity.
