City in Africa Proconsularis (Africa ; Bell. Afr. 77,1 f.) on or near the coast on the border with the kingdom of Juba , probably not identifiable with Thenae. In the Roman Civil War in 47/46 BC the Thabenenses were on the side of Caesar; in 46 they strangled the soldiers that Juba had established in the city (Bell. Afr. loc.cit.).
H. Treidler, s. v. T., RE 5 A, 1178.
