Byzantine Wall, Leptis Magna, Libya

The peaceful and prosperous situation of the town was interrupted by the attacks of the
Austuriani in 363-365 A.D. In spite of its past greatness, Sabratha did not manage then to
recover from the numerous destructions after so many devastating incursions. When the
Byzantine walls were erected during the sixth century A.D., the city had already been
boiled to the Forum and its surrounding blocks. Sand then began to cover up the city. At
the time of the Muslim conquest, the city was almost abandoned.
