Simingi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Simingi was a Roman era civitas (town) of the Roman province of Africa Proconsularis.

The town was the seat of an ancient bishopric, suffragan of the Archdiocese of Carthage.[1][2] Only two bishops of this diocese are documented.

In modern times Simingi became a titular bishopric. Simingi's bishop is Galo Fernández Villaseca of Santiago, Chile.
