Like all Roman cities, Cuicul (modern Djémila in Algeria) was organised around its two main axes: decumanus (main east-west street) and cardo (main south-north street). At Cuicul, the Cardo Maximus was 5 m (16 ft) wide and bordered on both sides by porticoes 3.50 m (11.4 ft) wide with Tuscan Doric and Corinthian colonnades.
