2. A native of Mallus in Cilicia 1, whose date is unknown, but wno is mentioned by Suidas as one of the "more ancient" physicians (πρεσβύτειοι).
He appears to have been eminent in his profession ; and as he lived after the time of Hippocrates, he may perhaps be placed in the fourth or third century B. C. (Suid. s. v.Σωρανός.)
1 * Haller seems to consider this Soranns to be the same as one of the following (Bibl. Medic. Pract. vol. i. p. 207), but probably without sufficient reason.
William Smith. A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology. London. John Murray: printed by Spottiswoode and Co., New-Street Square and Parliament Street. In the article on Soranus, we find: "at this present time (1848)" and this date seems to reflect the dates of works cited. 1873 - probably the printing date.
