Pepago'menus, Deme'trius（Δημήτριος Πεπαγομένος), a Greek medical writer. He is supposed to have lived towards the end of the thirteenth century after Christ, and to have dedicated one of his works to the emperor Michael Palaeologus, A. D. 1260-1282.
Περὶ Ποδάγρας,De Podagra, which has been attributed by some persons to Michael Psellus (Leo Allatius, De Psellis, § 52, ap. Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. v. ed. vet.). It consists of forty-five short chapters, besides the preface and conclusion, and, though principally compiled from former writers, is curious and interesting. A good analysis of its contents is given by Mr. Adams, in his commentary on Paulus Aegineta (3.78).
EditionsIt was first published without the author's name, in a Latin translation by Marcus Masurus, Rom. 1517, 8vo.; and afterwards in Greek and Latin, Paris, 1558, 8vo. The last and best edition is by J. S. Bernard, Greek and Latin, Ludg. Bat. 1743, 8vo., sometimes found with a new title page, Arnhem. 1753. The Latin translation by Masurus is inserted in H. Stephani Medicae Artis Principes, Paris, 1567, fol.; and the Greek and Latin text in the tenth volume of Chartier's Hippocrates and Galen.
Περὶ τῆς τῶν ἐν Νεφροῖς Παθῶν Διαγνώσεως καὶ Θεραπείας, De Renusm Affectuum Dignotione et Curatione, which is wrongly attributed to Galen [GALEN, p. 215.97], but there seems to be no sufficient ground for this opinion.
