1 I am conscious of a slight change in diction and method in this part of the Epidcmics. I mention four points :-- (1) The frequent use of πυρετὸς in the plural, which is unusual when it simply means "feverishness" (Cases VIII, IX, XII, XIII).(2) καταβαίνω is used of evacuations (Cases VII, IX οὔρα . . . κατέβαινεν, XII). (3) Treatment is mentioned (Case VIII, θερμάς1ματα, and ἀγκῶνα ἔταμον, where note the personal touch). (4) ἱδρύνομαι used of recovery of reason, = κατανοῶ (Case XV). The change is marked enough to lead one to suppose that these histories were composed at a different period in the writer's life.
