Pheradi Majus (or Pheradi Maius) is an ancient Tunisian site of Roman origin located in the vicinity of the village of Sidi Khelifa between Hammamet and Sousse .

Its existence dates back at least to the third century BC. The city became municipality under Marcus Aurelius and Roman colony before being abandoned in the twelfth century . The name of the city was identified thanks to a Latin text of a dedication to Neptune Augustus for the salvation of the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius signed by a local notable by the name of Marcus Barigbalus Pheraditanus Majus.
