29. There is a monastery in the middle of the bay of the shallow sea, near the coast of Iunci, mostly bordering upon Bennefa, where neither the small size of the rocky island permits cultivating gardens, nor is there even a minimum provision of timber and drinkable water, but everything must be delivered daily on small boats. The old and rigid discipline is maintained in that monastery. Those who live there follow in a manner worthy of praise the deeds of their holy profession, many of them from their infancy up to feeble old age. There were two presbyters there, of particular virtue and merit, respected for the dignity of their immaculate old age, who exercised the office of abbots. They never left the coenobium, but they nourished many men suitable for the ecclesiastical office.
