Info The town was founded as a Phoenician colony in the 8th century BCE, around the time Carthage was founded, and was a commercial city. It was a prominent city during the Phoenician period, but became a less important city during the Punic rule of the region, c. 600 BCE to 146 BCE. It was incorporated into the Roman Republic with the destruction of Carthage in 146 BCE, but gained more autonomy than it had during Punic Era. Julius Caesar used it as his base of operations in 46B CE during his winter campaign against supporters for Pompey led by Titus Labienus.
