2. ARTEMIDORUS CAPITO (Ἀρτεμίδωρος Καπίτων), a Greek physician and grammarian at Rome, in the reign of the emperor Hadrian, A. D. 117-138. He was a relation of Dioscorides, who also edited the works of Hippocrates, and he is frequently mentioned by Galen. (Comment. in Hippocr. "De Humor." vol. xvi. p. 2; Gloss. Hippocr. vol. xix. p. 83, &c.) He may perhaps be the person sometimes quoted simply by the name of Capito. [CAPITO.]


An Edition of the Works of Hippocrates

He published an edition of the works of Hippocrates, which Galen tells us (Comment. in Hippocr. " De Nat. Hom." vol. xv. p. 21) was not only much valued by the emperor himself, but was also much esteemed even in Galen's time. He is, however, accused of making considerable changes in the text, and of altering the old readings and modernizing the language.
