1. A Greek physician, quoted by Caelius Aurelianus (De Morb. Acut. 2.31, 3.14, 15, pp. 146, 224, 227), who was a native of Side in Pamphylia, and a follower of Erasistratus. He must have lived some time between the third century B. C. and the second century after Christ. He may perhaps be the person quoted by Galen without any distinguishing epithet (De Compos. Medicam. sec. Locos, 5.3, vol. xii. p. 828), but he is probably not the same person as the Artemidorus οἰωνιστής who is mentioned by the same author. (Comment. in Hippocr. "De Rat. Vict. in Morb. Ac." 1.15. vol. xv. p. 444.)
