(Souk el Arba de Sidi-Slimane) Morocco.
Ancient city of the S region of Mauretania Tingitana,
mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary
(23.4), Mela, and
Ptolemy. Its name appears stamped on some tegulae
found at the Souk el Arba of Sidi-Slimane, 1.5 km S of
the village, where remains of a Roman settlement were
discovered in a loop of the wadi Beth. The extent
of these ruins and their topography are undetermined,
but chance finds and some digging have revealed two
funerary inscriptions, a number of bronze statuettes
and fragments, coins, and an abundance of pottery. At
the village of Sidi-Slimane a Libyan inscription has been
found, and a tumulus tomb dating from the 3d-2d c.
B.C. was uncovered in early excavations.
