For the building, a "palazzo signorile" and possibly the official residence of the gymnasiarch, see Mingazzini, 1966, 105 f, and review by Goodchild, Libya Antiqua III-IV (1966-7), 258; Mingazzini had originally thought it to be the private house of Jason Magnus but came to believe that it was a Gymnasium.
