He was born at Pergamus in Mysia, but his date is very uncertain, since it can only be positively determined that, as he is quoted by Oribasius, he must have lived in or before the fourth century after Christ. (Orib. Eupor. ad Eun. 1.9, p. 578.)


On Scarification

He is probably the author of rather a long extract on Scarification preserved by Oribasius (Med. Coll. 7.19, 20, p. 316).


This is published by C. F. Matthaei in his Collection of Greek Medical Writers, entitled XXI. Veterum et Clarorum Medicorum Graecorum Varia Opuscula, Mosqu. 1808, 4to., p. 144.

Confusion about his name

He is supposed by some persons to be Apollonius Ophis, or Apollonius Ther.
