*Peri/andros), a Greek physician in the fourth century B. C. He enjoyed some reputation in his profession, but was also fond of writing poor verses, which made Archidamus, the son of Agesilaus, ask him how he could possibly wish to be called a bad poet rather than an accomplished physician. (Plut. Apophthegm. Lacon. vol. ii. p. 125. ed Tauchin.)
