Along with a group ofsettlers, she traveled a great distance by sea andlanded in North Africa, where she met King Iarbas.He offered to give them land in order to build asettlement, but no bigger than the surface covered by the hide of an ox. They cleverly cut thehide into thin strips and were able to enclose a fairly large area of land. On this land, themighty city of Carthage was built.
