Fufitius (Fufidius)
According to Vitruvius (VII, præf.) Fufitius was the first Roman writer on architecture (de his rebus primus instituit edere volumen).

An architect of Asia Minor who is mentioned frequently by Vitruvius without any indication of the precise time in which he lived. His temple of Diana at Magnesia is mentioned by Vitruvius as an example of a pseudodipteral temple, a style of building which he is supposed to have invented. He wrote descriptions of this building and of the temple of Bacchus at Teos.
