This monument is sometimes known as the Mausoleum of Juba and Cleopatra Selene. In the French language the mausoleum is known as Tombeau de la Chretienne, "the tomb of the Christian woman", because there is a cross-like shape of the division lines on the false door. In Arabic, the mausoleum is called the Kubr-er-Rumia or Kbor er Roumia, which means the tomb of the Roman woman. When the Arabs first conquered North Africa they used to call people, places or anything that was from non-Muslim origins Rûm, "Roman", after the Eastern Roman Empire.
