Some historical figures :

Apuleius

Quote:
Apuleius ( /ˌpjʉˈliːəs/; sometimes called Lucius Apuleius; c. 125 c. 180) was a Latin prose writer. He was Numidian Berber, from Madaurus (now M'Daourouch, Algeria). He studied Platonist philosophy in Athens; travelled to Italy, Asia Minor and Egypt; and was an initiate in several cults or mysteries.

Apuleius was born in Madaurus (now M'Daourouch, Algeria), a Roman colony in Numidia on the North African coast, bordering Gaetulia, and he described himself as "half-Numidian half-Gaetulian."Madaurus was the same colonia where Saint Augustine later received part of his early education, and, though located well away from the Romanized coast, is today the site of some pristine Roman ruins. .


Augustine of Hippo

Quote:
Augustine of Hippo ( /ɒˈɡʌstɨn/ or /ˈɔːɡəstɪn/; Latin: Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis; November 13, 354 August 28, 430), also known as St. Augustine, St. Austin, or St. Augoustinos, was bishop of Hippo Regius (present-day Annaba, Algeria). He was a Latin philosopher and theologian from the Africa Province of the Roman Empire and is generally considered as one of the greatest Christian thinkers of all times. His writings were very influential in the development of Western Christianity.

Augustine was born in 354 in the municipium of Thagaste (now Souk Ahras, Algeria) in Roman Africa

AMAZING! Bit lost for words. How splendid these towns/cities must have been in their heyday! My admiration is tinged with sadness at what is lost as much as reveling in what we still have. It is haunting to remember these once were thriving towns & cities and now ruins, all life gone. Sets the imagination reeling.

Thank you for providing that link: a terrific gift.

Someone should do a similar thread for the Greek & Roman ruins in Turkey which are also extraordinary.
