Anthaeus

*)Anqai=os) or Antaeus, a physician, whose ridiculous and superstitious remedy for hydrophobia is mentioned by Pliny. (H. N. 28.2.) One of his prescriptions is preserved by Galen. (De Compos. Medicam. sec. Locos, 4.8. vol. xii. p. 764.) Nothing is known of the events of his life, but, as Pliny mentions him, he must have lived some time in or before the first century after Christ.

[W.A.G]
