Description: Sabratha, a Phoenician trading-post that functioned as an outlet for African hinterland products, before being Romanized and rebuilt in the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. was part of the short-lived Numidian Kingdom of Massinissa. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Sabratha, in the Zawia district in the northwestern corner of modern Libya, was the westernmost of the "three cities" of Tripolis. It lies on the Mediterranean coast about 65km (40 miles) west of Tripoli (ancient Oea). The extant archaeological site was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982. --Wikipedia.
