AD SAVA MUNICIPIUM
(Hammam Guergour) Algeria.
The ruins occupy a large area on the
slopes of the right bank of the Bou Sellam River, where
it emerges from the gorges cutting through the Bibans
range, beyond the meanderings of the wadi in the eastern high plains of the Constantinois.
The modern importance of the village derives from a
hot spring, which is used for public baths. Near the
modern baths, excavations have just brought to light
those of antiquity. On the hilltops dominating the town
one can still see mausolea and caves.
By general agreement the site is identified as Ad Sava
Municipium, a stop on the road from Saldae to Sitifis,
according to the Antonine Itinerary
. Perhaps Ad Sava
is the bishopric of Assava of the conference of 411.
