<title> ABSTRACT </title>There is a tradition that in 1437 the Mongol astronomer, Ulugh Beg, laid out a MERIDIANA in the church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. This MERIDIANA would predate the famous, large-scale interior meridiane constructed from 1475 onwards primarily in Italy. It is the purpose of this paper to demonstrate that this claim for a MERIDIANA in Hagia Sophia cannot be sustained, but was generated by the astronomer Leonardo Ximenes in the eighteenth century on the basis of a misunderstanding of a statement by the seventeenth-century astronomer, John Greaves.
