  • Horatio Robert Forbes Brown (Nizza, 16 febbraio 1854 – Belluno, 19 agosto 1926) è stato uno storico britannico. Pochi anni dopo la nascita si trasferì a Bristol con la madre rimasta vedova. Nel 1885 lasciò il Regno Unito e si stabilì definitivamente a Venezia, sempre con sua madre, occupandosi di studi topografici e storici di quella città. A Venezia conobbe Giacomo Boni che divenne suo amico nella comune passione per le antichità di Venezia e dell'Italia in genere. Dopo la scoperta del Lacus Curtius nel 1903, Brown fu invitato da Boni a raggiungerlo a Roma per onorare il luogo versando una libagione di vino secondo il rito della religione romana. (it)
