Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sergius Orata (fl. c. 95 BC) was a famed merchant and hydraulic engineer of the Roman Republic. Sergius was well-known by his contemporaries because of the breeding and commercialization of oysters, in which he can be considered a pioneer. Orata wanted to take advantage of Romans' taste for shellfish, so he developed a new system for breeding oysters. He constructed channels and preys to control sea tides, as well as high vaults over Lucrine Lake. He is also credited with the invention of the hypocaust, although this is not fully confirmed.
