Leo or LEON

or LEON, a physician, called φιλόδοφος καὶ ἰατρός.


Σύνοψις τῆς Ἰατρικῆς,

the author of a short Greek medical work, in seven books, entitled Σύνοψις τῆς Ἰατρικῆς, Conspectus Medicinae, dedicated to a person named Georgius, at whose request it was written. It consists of a very brief account of about two hundred diseases, taken in a great measure from Galen. It is uncertain at what time Leo lived, but it may have been about the eighth or ninth century after Christ.


The work is to be found in Greek and Latin, in F. Z. Ermerins, Anecdota Medica Graeca, 8vo. Lugd. Bat., 1840.
