7. Abú-l-Faraj mentions a physician of this name, who lived in the seventh century after Christ; but the Arabic writers are so incorrect in Greek history and Chronology, that it is not at all unlikely that he is speaking of one of the persons already named. (Hist. Dynast. p. 115.)

There is extant in the Greek Anthology an epigram of a physician of this name, Εις τὴν Εἰκόνα Γαληνοῦ (Anthol. Planud. § 270); and also one by Palladas, Εἰς Μάγνον Ἰατροσοφιστήν (11.281, ed. Tauchn).
