The Forum of Hippo Regius (modern Annaba, Algeria) was a rectangular paved area measuring 76 x 43 m. It was one of the largest forums in North Africa. It features a long inscription extending in two lines across its entire width, represented by letters that would have been filled with bronze. The text records that the paving was dedicated by C. Paccius Africanus, pontifex, consul, proconsul, and patron of the municipium of Hippo.
