Diony'sius

5. Of SAMOS, whose medical formulae are quoted by Galen (De Compos. Medicam. sec. Gen. 4.13, vol. xiii. p. 745), is supposed by Meursius (l.c.) to be the same person as the son of Musonius; but, as Kiihn observes (Additam. ad Elenck. Medicor. Vet. a Fabricio in " Biblioth. Graeca," exhib. fascic. xiv. p. 7), from no other reason, than because both are said to have been natives of Samos (nor is even this quite certain), whereas from the writings of the son of Musonius there is no ground for believing him to have been a physician, or even a collector of medical prescriptions.
