unknown1577/78
an Ottoman poet and historian born in Yenice-i Vardar (modern Giannitsa). As a mudarris and qadi, he traveled to many places, including Istanbul and Gallipoli. In poetry, he is famous for a qasida addressed to his sweetheart, a sailor, which uses much nautical slang. His poetry was apparently not collected into a diwan. In history, his Tarikh-i Ghazat-i Sigetwar describes Suleiman I's campaign on Szigetvár. No manuscript is known.
