(Koudiat Rosfa) Tunisia.
on the coast of the Sahel 30 km N of Sfax, appears in
the Peutinger Table
between Uzilla and Acholla. The
ancient name has survived in its current toponymy as
Koudiat Rosfa, 10 km N of Inchilla and 9 km S of
Botria. A port and some remains have been found there,
among them baths which were excavated in 1953. A little
farther S, an important road coming from Thysdrus ends
at the coast. The identification of the city has been
difficult, but final identification of Botria with Acholla
has permitted the location of Ruspe at Koudiat Rosfa.
The city owes its fame to St. Fulgence, who held the
office of bishop there at the end of the Vandal age.
