:: Recording Notes ::
0 - The guardian, Tayeb El Hannach, speaks in Moroccan Arabic about the ruins: "These are the Roman ruins, the Phoenician ruins, and the Arab? old ruins? the city of Lixus? and in it we find the Roman ruins, the Arab ruins, and the Phoenician ruins. I am the guardian of the ruins of Lixus, I watch over (all) the ruins."
