*)Asklhpio/dotos), a physician, who was also well versed in mathematics and music, and who grew famous for reviving the use of white hellebore, which in his time had grown quite out of vogue. He lived probably about the end of the fifth century after Christ, as he was the pupil of Jacobus Psychrestus, and is mentioned by Damascius. (Damascius, apud Phot. Cod. 242, p. 344b., ed. Bekk.; Suidas, s. v. Σωρανος; Freind's Hist. of Physic.)
