Unlike most Roman cities, Thuburbo Majus lacks the straight streets, the rectangular outlay. A common theory is that when the Romans started to build it in 27 BCE as a veteran's colony, an existing Punic town was already here, and it was not sacrificed for the new developments. This town is in the dip between the Forum and the House of Neptune, although every stone here have been relocated many times during the Roman centuries.
