Description

The remains of the "sumptuous governor's palace, of about A.D. 500, in which lived the beautiful and talented Theodora—unjustly vilified by Gibbon (following Procopius)—who was the governor's favorite before she married Justinian. The city wall forms its south side, and some of its rooms project into a bastion" (MacKendrick, 132). (Source: MacKendrick, Paul. The North African Stones Speak.
