Hermo'crates

Ἑρμοκράτης), a physician mentioned by Martial in one of his epigrams (6.53), the point of which seems to be borrowed from one by Lucilius in the Greek Anthology (xi 257, vol. ii. p. 59, ed. Tauchn.) If the name is not a fictitious one, Hermocrates may have lived in the first century after Christ.

[W.A.G]
