*)Elaiou/sios), if the name be correct, must have lived in or before the first century after Christ, as he is quoted by Soranus (de Arte Obstetr. p. 210), who calls him one of the followers of Asclepiades, and says he was one of those physicians who considered that there were certain diseases peculiar to the female sex, in opposition to some other medical writers who held the contrary opinion. He wrote a work on chronic diseases (Χρόνια), of which the thirteenth book is referred to by Soranus, but of which nothing now remains.
