Icon of person Pope Sisinnius

Pope Sisinnius (c. 650 – 4 February 708) was the bishop of Rome from 15 January 708 to his death.Sisinnius was born in Tyre (modern-day Lebanon), and his father's name was John. The paucity of donations to the papacy during his reign (42 pounds of gold and 310 pounds of silver, a fraction of the personal donations of other contemporary pontiffs) indicate that he was probably not from the aristocracy.Sisinnius was selected as pope during the period of Byzantine domination, succeeding John VII after a vacancy of three months.
