Emperor Vespasien and his sons began to develop Sbeitla after the Third Augustan Legion established a garrison at Ammaedara. The town found success in the olive industry during the 200 BC and continued to be prosperous through to the 3rd and 4th centuries despite the decline of the Roman Empire in many other provinces. During this time many churches were built in Sbeitla, some belonging to Rome and others to the Donatist sect. Many of these churches still stand and are regarded as some of the most impressive monuments left by the Roman Empire.
