ancient city is covered over by the modern one. Repairs
and construction work have uncovered some underlying ruins, as yet unidentified, in the cathedral quarter,
and traces of a Roman necropolis. Among the remains
are the base of a sarcophagus, carved in marble; a
bronze statuette of Hercules; some coins, and a great
quantity of pottery. A bishopric in the Byzantine era,
Septem was the last Moroccan city to recognize the
authority of the emperor at the time of the Arab conquest.
