The town flourished from 30BC until 640AD and has been tentatively identified with ruins at Henchir Soudga, (9.57727n 35.98709e) in Siliana Governorate. The ruins lie just outside the Jebel Serj National Park.
The town was made famous by the courage of the martyr Mansuetus of Urusi, who was burned alive, according to Victor of Vita at the gate of Urusi. In 305, during the same persecution the basilicas of Lemsa, Zama and Furni, Tunisia had been burned.
