F. QUIRINA, an architect, known by an extant inscription, in which he is described as Architectus Exercit., from which it appears that he devoted especial attention to military engineering, which, among the ancients, was always considered a branch of architecture. (Donati, Supplem. vol. i. p. 38, No. 1; Sillig, Catal. Artific. Appendix, s.v. R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 422, 2d ed.)
