The springs are known to the Arabs as Hammam Meskutin (the " accursed baths ").
Cirta (Constantine) and Bulla Regia (Hammam Darraj), its chief towns, received coloniae of soldiers and veterans, as well as Theveste (Tebessa) and Thamugas (Timgad).
At the north-east corner of the town is a sulphur spring, and 4 leagues to the south there is a hot sulphur spring (Hammam `Ali), much frequented by invalids.
Within a mile of Hammam Meskutin are ferruginous and sulphureous springs.
It would be a typical Hammam ploy to also push the boat out for the Wales captain one day.
