A villa complex at Lixus on the Atlantic coast (modern-day Morocco) from the time of Juba II (c. 48 BCE to 23 CE), the ruler of Mauretania. The palace-like residence was approximately 7,000 square metres with a long portico, a triclinium complex, a reception hall, a peristyle court, and exedras. This complex probably belonged to a courtier under Juba II.
