a physician of Centuripa in Sicily, who was the tutor of Valens and Scribonius Largus (Scrib. Larg. De Compos. Medicam.
capp. 94, 171), and who must therefore have lived about the beginning of the Christian era.
He has been supposed to be the author of the work entitled Herbarium, seu de Medicaminibus Herbarum,
which goes under the name of Appuleius Barbarus [APPULEIUS], but this is probably not the case.
He may, however, perhaps be the person who is quoted several times in the Geoponica, Cantab. 8vo. 1704.
