Marin Beçikemi (aka Latin: Marinus Becichemus Scodrensis) (1468-1526) was an Albanian 15th and 16th century humanist, orator, and chronist. Born in Shkodër he had seen 26 out of his 30 family members die in the Siege of Shkodra from the Ottoman Empire. In 1503 he published a panegyric to the Venetian Senate concerning the siege; it was translated into Albanian and English and included with Marin Barleti's work, The Siege of Shkodra. He wrote commentaries on Cicero, Pliny the Elder and other classical philosophers. He was a professor of rhetoric at the University of Padova.[1]
