Erotian knew also περὶ τραυμάτων καὶ βελῶν, now lost. The double XX means "by quotation, but not in the list."

[p. xl] N.B.--The list of Bacchius is made by noting where in the Hippocratic collection occur the strange words upon which he commented ; that of Celsus by a comparison of similar passages ; that of Erotian from his list, by noting where occur the γλῶς1ς1αι explained by him, and from fragments in scholia (see E. Nachmanson's edition, pp. 99 foll.). Of course the list of Celsus is dubious from its nature, and Bacchius may have known many more treatises than those we are sure he did know.

The recently discovered history of medicine called Menon's Iatrica1 contains several references to Hippocrates. Diels is of opinion that they are very erroneous.2

In V. the writer says that according to Hippocrates diseases are caused by "airs" (φῦς1αι), a statement which seems to be taken from περὶ φυς1ῶν, VI. 98 foll. Littré, and the doctrine is described in V. and VI. In VII. Hippocrates is said to hold doctrines which are taken from Nature of Man, VI. 52 foll. Littré. In VIII. occur references to Places in Man, VI. 276, 294 Littré, and Glands, VIII. 564 Littré. In XIX. occur references to Nature of Man, VI. 38 Littré, but the physician named is Polybus.

1 Edited by H. Diels, Berlin, 1893. The work was probably written by a pupil of Aristotle.
