re: the chronicles of Greek historian Hecatus of Miletus: "Il parle de Trink, de Melissa, de Ting et de Tamuda..." these being Carthaginian/Punic colonies in North Africa. Particularly for Trink and Ting - would anyone know the spellings of these that are common in English literature? My own web searches have not been fruitful. Thank you!

Thank you Fuad for your excellent and complete answer. I did find the Tingis reference, but still lacked Trincaria - no doubt I would not have found it without your help.
