The photo shows one of the many fortified farms of along the upper Wadi Ghirza that are part of the Limes Tripolitanus. It measures about 17½ x 17½ meter, is about an hour to the west of the town of Ghirza, and controls a crossing of a wadi.

In Graeme Barker e.a., Farming the Desert. The UNESCO Libyan Valleys Archaeological Survey (1996), this farm is known as Gh82. A satellite photo can be found here.
