Tunisia 10 dinars, November 7, 2005 (Swap with Nabil Zaouali from Tunisia)

Dido was, according to ancient Greek and Roman sources, the founder and first Queen of Carthage (in modern-day Tunisia). She is best known from the account given by the Roman poet Virgil in his Aeneid. In some sources she is also known as Elissa.

The name Elissa is probably a Greek rendering of the Phoenician Elishat. The name Dido, used mostly by Latin writers, seems to be a Phoenician form meaning "wanderer" and was perhaps the name under which Elissa was most familiarly known in Carthage.
