), a Greek physician, quoted by Caelius Aurelianus (De Moro. Acut.
3.16, p. 233), who was a pupil of Alexander Philalethes (Galen. De Differ. Puls.
4.10, vol. viii. p. 746), and must therefore have lived about the beginning of the Christian era.
He was a follower of Herophilus (ibid.
100.7. p. 734), and studied at the celebrated Herophilean school of medicine, established in Phrygia, at the village of Men-Carus, between Laodicea and Carura.
He wrote a work Περὶ τῆς ῾Ποφίλου Αἱρέσεως
, De Herophili Secta,
of which the thirteenth book is quoted by Galen (ibid.
100.10. p. 746), and which is not now extant. (Mahne, "Diatribe de Aristoxeno," Amstel. 1793, 8vo.)
