Commune and town
|Time zone||UTC+1 (CET)|
For a long time, its functions have been limited to those of an agricultural village marketing the products of its surrounding countryside during a weekly market. But it is also a service center that functions as a relay in relation to the agglomeration of Sfax. The city nevertheless struggles to develop even if only on the agricultural level because its soil is cramped within the large olive grove of the region of Sfax.
During the Roman Empire Djebeliana was the site of a civitas of the Roman province of Africa Proconsularis, and in late Antiquity found itself in Byzacena. At this time, the town was also the seat of an ancient Christian diocese, which survives today as a titular bishopric of the Roman Catholic Church, the current bishop of which is Otto Georgens of Germany. The ruins of the Roman town were examined by the French.
