Aristo'xenus

*)Aristo/cenos), 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.)
