  the market with its stalls

Next to the Forum there is a small market or Agora. You still can see the rectangular stalls. But the temple of Mercury with 8 columns forming a nice circular design is more interesting. It’s a logical position for this temple because Mercury was the god protector of the trade.

Directions: Central East of Tunisia
The nearest town is El Fahr
