A titular see in Africa Proconsularis, suffragan of Carthage. Tabbora or Talbora has been identified with two groups of ruins rather close to each other, now called Tembra, west of Bijga (ancient Bisica) in the valley of Wady Siliana, Tunis. Two bishops are known: Marinus, present at the Conference of Carthage (411), where his rival was Victor, also rival of the Bishop of Bisica; and Constantine, who signed the letter from the bishops of the province to Paul, Patriarch of Constantinople, against the Monothelites (646).
