D. the Roman Emperor Trajan built a city at the edge of the desert near the Aures mountains in what is now Algeria, North Africa. Ostensibly, the city was to help house the retired soldiers of Trajan's legions and it had a projected population of around 15,000. It was to these specifications that the city was originally built. Very soon, however, the city grew beyond its original confines and developed in a less strictly organized manner outside the original perimeters. The plan of Timgad follows the model of a Roman military camp or castrum; square shaped, grid-planned, with two main streets called the decumanus (east-west direction) and cardo (north-south direction). In the case of Timgad, the cardo only goes as far as meeting up with the decumanus (instead of continuing through) and it is at this intersection that one finds the forum or central square of Timgad. Just off the forum are the theater, public toilets, and other civic and religious institutional buildings such as the basilica.
