Marsilio Zorzi Open this page in a new tab

Guidoboni and Comastri (2005) describe Zorzi Marsilio as the Venetian bailo (ambassador) to Syria who in a letter dated to October 1243 refers to a group of properties in the city of Tyre, some of which had been destroyed in an earthquake which he does not identify. Guidoboni and Comastri (2005) suggest that it is likely that the writer is referring to damage caused by the 1202 earthquake.
