Thagora was an inland trading post controlled by Carthage. It was about 64 kilometers (40 mi) southeast of Hippo Regius. It minted bronze coins with a bearded head obverse and a prancing horse beneath a star reverse.
Thagora was a Christian bishopric. The names of three of its diocesan bishops are known. It fell into abeyance following the Islamic conquest of the Maghreb but was revived by the Roman Catholic Church as a titular see.
