Relay-stations

The Relay-stations between Thabraca and Rusazus.
 
 

Until now we have treated seven important Phoenician/Punic settlements along the coast of mainly Algeria. They are not always separated from each-other by the assumed amount of kilometres for Phoenician ships for one-day sailing = c.50 km. It is true, when they were sailing night and day, they could cover c.100 km, but that was not always the case. There must have been relay-stations in between.
Capital letters: the nowadays names.

There could have been 5 or 6 relay-stations between the 7 mayor settlements. Only from ZIAMA (Choba) and the Oued el KEBIR (Ampsaga) are the names for the relay-stations from antiquity known. In the relay-stations hardly any Phoenician or Punic relict has been found. Maybe they sailed indeed regularly day and night.
