Pomponius Mela (born in Tingentera, near Algeciras) who wrote around the year 43, is one of the most ancient Roman geographers known. He offered a description covering the world known to the Greco-Romans. Pomponius Mela is the author who presents the most complete picture of the state of geography during the middle of the first century of the Christian era.

Joachim Vadian, born Joachim von Watt, was a humanist, scholar, mayor and reformer in St. Gallen.
