Under his name are extant some commentaries on two works of the Hippocratic Collection.

Commentaries on

The commentary on the sixth book De Morbis Popularibus is said to have been translated from Greek into Arabic, and from thence into Latin.


A Latin version is to be found, together with Henain Ibn Ishak (commonly called by his Latinised name, Joannitius), and other authors, in the edition of the collection called Articella, printed at Venice, 1483, fol., and in other editions.


His commentary on the De Natura Paeri, which is imperfect, was first published in Greek in the second vol. of Dietz's Schol. in Hippocr. et Gal. Regim. Pruss. 8vo. 1834.
