), a physician whose medical formulae appear to have enjoyed some celebrity, as they are quoted with approbation by Galen (de Compos. Medicam. sec. Gen.
5.2. vol. xiii. p. 784), Oribasius (Synops.
iii. p. 43), Aetius (Tetrab. iv. Serm. 2.34. p. 705, and Tetrab. iv. Serm. 3.21. p. 772), Paulus Aegineta (4.55, p. 530, 7.19, p. 686), and others. As Galen is the earliest writer by whom he is mentioned, he must have lived some time in or before the second century after Christ.
