a physician, who was one of the followers of Herophilus, and who must have lived about the second century B. C., as he is mentioned by Zeuxis. (Galen, Comment. in Hippocr. "Epid. VI." 1.5. vol. xvii. pt. i. p. 827.) He wrote a work in explanation of the obsolete word; used by Hippocrates, which is not now extant, but which is quoted by Erotianus. (Gloss. Hippocr. praef.) He may perhaps be the same person who is mentioned by Pliny as having written a work De, Coronis. (H. N. 21.9.)
