The Forum of Castellum Tidditanorum (modern Tiddis in Algeria) was one of the smallest Roman forums, built on a terrace measuring 10 × 30 m (32 x 98 ft) and oriented north-south. Three east-facing separate rooms were cut into the slope and opened onto the forum, which may have served civic purposes with a curia. Inscribed pedestals stand as memorials to distinguished citizens.
