The ancient Sira corresponds to the modern Oued El Hammam in Algeria, which originates above Hammam bou Hanifia (ancient Aquae Sirenses) and the modern reservoir there. At modern Mohammadia (ancient Castra Nova), the river leaves the mountains and becomes known as the Oued Habra. Its course north across the plain and associated wetlands to empty into the Mediterranean east of modern Mers El Hadjadj is surely much altered from antiquity.
