In the 19th century, the ruins of a 4th or 5th-century Christian church could still be easily distinguished at Cape Djinet, but little trace now remains.
At the earlier Conference of Carthage in 411 between Catholic and Donatist bishops, Cissi was represented only by a Donatist bishop named Flavosus. The Latin adjective referring to Cissi, Cissitanus, is applied to him in the account of that conference. In the 19th century, Morcelli took the adjective Cessitanus to refer to Cissi, and supposed instead that the name of the Cissi bishop at the conference was Quodvultdeus.
