SIAGUL

SIAGUL (Σιαγούλ, Ptol. 4.3.9, (the most easterly town of Zeugitana, only 3 miles from the coast, and to which Putput served as a harbour. Shaw (Travels, ch. 2) identifies it with some ruins at the village of Kassir-Asseite, from two inscriptions which he found there, with the words Civ. Siagitana; but which he must have read incorrectly, since the town would have been called Siagulitana. According to Maffei (Mus. Veron. p. 457. 2) there is also an inscription with the words Civ. Siagitana near Turuz in Africa; which Orelli (i. p. 334) refers either to Sigus in Numidia or to Sigu in Mauritania Caesariensis.
