Bartolomeo Marliani

Map of Rome's city walls and gates from the 1544 edition of ''Antiquae Romae topographia''. Giovanni Bartolomeo Marliano (1488 - 26 July 1566) was an Italian antiquarian and topographer, most notable for his study of the topography of ancient Rome, particularly his seven-volume ''Antiquae Romae topographia'', a complete treatment of the city's ancient topography. First published in 1534 and republished nine times, it remained the standard treatise on the city's topography until the 18th century. He lost a debate with Pirro Ligorio on the site of the Roman Forum, but was later proved right in that matter. Provided by Wikipedia
