In Roman times it was called Chullu. At the joint Conference of Carthage that in 411 brought together Catholic and Donatist bishops of Roman Africa, Chullu was represented by the Catholic bishop Victor and the Donatist Fidentius. In 484, Quidvultdeus was one of the Catholic bishops that the Arian Vandal king Huneric summoned to Carthage and then exiled. Bishop Aurelius of 256 is assigned to this diocese by 19th-century Morcelli, but to Cillium (modern Kasserine) by 20th-century Berthier and Mesnage.
In 1282, Peter III of Aragon led an expedition to Collo, in proclaimed support of a rebellion against the ruler of Tunis. The rebellion had collapsed before Peter arrived, but he kept his army there for several weeks until, in the wake of the Sicilian Vespers, envoys from Sicily came to Collo to offer him its throne. The resulting war continued until 1301.
