André Jodin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

André Jodin is an archaeologist known for explorations and excavations in North Africa, especially in Morocco. André Jodin (1921-2003) studied Phoenician and Punic sites in Morocco in the 1960s and 1970s. Mogador (Essaouira) (Kerné?) became then the most extreme place of Phoenician merchants in the South Atlantic African coast. His contribution to Volubilis (Muley Idris) followed Carcopino’s thesis about the regia of king Juba II (25 BP-23 AD) in Morocco. In the 1980s André Jodin participated in the archaeological study of the Iberian necropolis of Cabezo Lucero (Guardamar del Segura, Alicante). References: -A. Jodin: Mogador.
