Vitruvius (Roman author, engineer, and architect, 1st century BCE)

Note: Best known for a lengthy treatise "De architectura" (On Architecture), which is the only text on architectural theory and practice to have survived from Classical antiquity. In a 4th-century condensed version of the work produced by Faventius, Faventius claims the cognomen or family name of Vitrtuvius was "Pol[l]io," and this name has thus been traditionally associated with Vitruvius, but this is not verified by any 1st-century source. Some scholars believe Vitruvius was the identified engineer of Julius Ceasar, Mamurra of Formia, who may have also been known as "L. Vitruvius Mamurra." Roman architectural author and theoretician, b. ca. 84 B.C.
