According to tradition, Marcello Tegalliano (Latin Marcellus) was the second Doge of Venice (717–726). However, John Julius Norwich has argued that the first doge, Paoluccio Anafesto, was actually Paul, Exarch of Ravenna, and that Marcellus was actually his magister militum of the same first name.[1]
