(Slava Rusă) Dobrudja, Romania.
Mentioned by Procopius (De aed
. 4.7) as Ibida, but Theophylactus Simocatta (Historiae
1.8) uses the name Libidinon polis. A recently found Latin inscription (ca. A.D.
200) seems to confirm that the correct name was Libida.
The large late Roman site (4th-6th c.) was built over
the ruins of an earlier Roman settlement (2d-3d c.).
During excavations remains of a Christian basilica (6th
c.) were uncovered.
