Marcus Vitruvius Pollio (c. 90 - c. 20 BCE), better known as Vitruvius, was a Roman military engineer and architect who wrote De Architectura (On Architecture), a treatise which combines the history of ancient architecture and engineering with the author's personal experience and advice on the subject. Since no similar work has survived complete from antiquity, the book has become an invaluable source.
