Abstract: The Armenian priest Giovanni Agop (Hovhannes Hakob) Holov was born in Constantinople in 1635; after his studies in Rome at the College of S.C. de Propaganda Fide, he supervised the Armenian print offices in Leghorn and Marseille. In the history of the Armenian language Agop is known as the grammarian who modelled the so called latinaban hayerēn - latinizing Armenian. In this context we investigate his important role developped in Venice in the Eighties of the 17th century: as a teacher of religion at the Catecumeni Institute, as a tutor in Turkish of the Ambassador of the Serenissima in Constantinople, Giovanni Battista Donà, and as supervisor to the edition of the Turkish Proverbs translated in Latin, Arabic, and Italian by the students of the Venetian school of Oriental languages during Donà's Embassy.
