Assurae, also spelled Assuræ, often shortened Assur (not to be confused with the Assyrian capital Ashur), is a Roman Catholic titular see in the former Roman province of Proconsular Africa, later renamed Henchir-Zenfour. Its episcopal list (251-484) is given in Gams (p. 464). Ruins of its temples and theatres and other public buildings are still visible.
