Note: The Tunisian national authorities decided in 1997 to change
the old French transcription from "Chemtou" into "Chimtou". This
may only affect bibliographers for some time, while Arabic orthography
does not change. The alteration has the elegant advantage of coming
closer to the ancient Amazigh (or Punic?) name of "Simitthu".
