QUIZA (Κούϊζα,also Βούϊζα, Ptol. 4.2.3), a place on the coast of Mauretania Caesariensis, called by Ptolemy a colonia, and in the Antonine Itinerary a municipium, but in Pliny designated as “Quiza Xenitana preregrinorum oppidum.” It was situated between Portus Magnus and Arsenaria, at the distance of 40 stadia from either. It is the modern Giza near Oran. (Ptol. l.c.; It. Ant. p. 13; Plin 5.2; Mela, 1.6.)
