the fifteenth in descent from Aesculapius, the eldest son of Gnosidicus, the brother of Podaleirius II. and Aeneius, and the father of Heracleides. He lived probably in the sixth and fifth centuries B. C.


Some ancient critics attributed to him the two works De Fracturis, and De Articulis, while others contended that he wrote nothing at all.
