13. APOLLONIUS MUS (Μῦς
), a follower of Herophilus, of whose life no particulars are known, but who must have lived in the first century B. C., as Strabo mentions him as a contemporary. (14.1, p. 182, ed. Tauchn.)
He was a fellow-pupil of Heracleides of Erythrae (ibid.
), and composed a long work on the opinions of the sect founded by Herophilus. (Cael. Aurel. De Morb. Acut.
2.13, p. 110; Gal. De Differ. Puls.
4.10, vol. viii. pp. 744, 746.)
He also wrote on pharmacy (Cels. De Med.
v. praef. p. 81; Pallad. Comm. in Hipp.
" ap. Dietz, Schol. in Hipp. et Gal.
vol. ii. p. 98; Gal. De Antid.
2.7, 8, vol. xiv. pp. 143, 146), and is supposed to be the same person who is sometimes called " Apollonius Herophileius."
