Giovanni Filoteo Achillini
Giovanni Filoteo Achillini (Latin Joannes Philotheus Achillinus; 1466–1538) was an Italian philosopher.
He applied himself to Greek, Latin, theology, philosophy, music, antiquities, jurisprudence, poetry, etc., but did not excel in any specific field. His poetry is the most noteworthy of his work; written in what has since been considered the bad taste that prevailed at the end of the 15th century, however, his works have left scarcely any memory of their existence but their titles. One of the principal was titled Viridario and contained the eulogy of many of his contemporaries in literature, with lessons of morality. He also wrote some remarks on Italian  to the disparagement of Tuscan, and the praise of Bolognese, which he had used in his poems. Of antiquities, he had accumulated ample collections.
