Can anybody clarify between the author Vitruvius who wrote "De Architectura Libri Decem" and other guy named from some publications called "Vitruvii". Are they the same guy?
Some publications indicate that Vitruvius wrote"De Architecttura", which is different from the "Ten Books of Architecture".
And As far as I know, there were other guys wrote "De Architecttura", too. Such as Serlio...,and Palladio also wrote one.

Can anybody possibly tell me systematically all the differences in least the right match of the author and the books?

Thank you very much.
