Thagora was a Carthaginian and Roman town at what is now Taoura, Algeria.

Name

The Punic form of its name was TGRN (𐤕‬𐤂‬𐤓𐤍).[1] The Tabula Peutingeriana calls it Thacora.

History

Thagora was an inland trading post controlled by Carthage. It was about 64 kilometers (40 mi) southeast of Hippo Regius.[1] It minted bronze coins with a bearded head obverse and a prancing horse beneath a star reverse.[1]

Under the Romans, it formed part of the province of Numidia.

Religion

Thagora was a Christian bishopric. The names of three of its diocesan bishops are known.[2] It fell into abeyance following the Islamic conquest of the Maghreb but was revived by the Roman Catholic Church as a titular see.[3]
