Greek physicians named Archidamus and Archedamus

*)Arxi/damos), a Greek physician of whom no particulars are known, but who must have lived in the fourth or fifth century B. C., as Galen quotes one of his opinions (De Simpl. Medicam. Temper. ac Facult. 2.5, &c., vol. xi. p. 471, &c.), which was preserved by Diocles of Carystus.

A physician of the same name is mentioned by Pliny (H. N. Ind. Auct.).
