ADIS or ADES ('A^is/Ahis: prob. Rkades),tL considerable city of Africa, on the Gulf of Tunis, in the Carthaginian territory, which Regulus besieged and took, and before which he defeated the Cartha- ginians, in the 10th year of the first Punic War, B. c. 255. (PoL i. 30.) As there is no subsequent mention of the place, it is supposed to have been supplanted, or at least reduced to insignificance, by the kter town of Maxula.[ P. S. ]
