Vitruvius

Roman architect and engineer Marcus Vitruvius Pollio wrote De architectura (“On architecture”), a ten book treatise on architecture, as a guide for building projects.

De architectura is one of the most important sources of modern knowledge of Roman building methods, the planning and design of structures such as aqueducts, buildings, baths, harbours, and small machines, measuring devices, instruments.

Vitruvius is also the prime source of the famous story of Archimedes and his bath-time discovery.
