a Greek physician, of whom it is only known that he must have lived some time in or before the first century after Christ, as one of his medical formulae is quoted by Andromnachus. (ap. Galen. de Compos. Medicam. sec. Locos,
7.6. vol. xiii. p. 114.)
He is also quoted by Gariopontus (de Febr.
100.7). from which it would appear either that some of his works were extant in the eleventh century, or that some sources of information concerning him were then to be had which do not now exist.
