Further Fragments of Andreas of Carystus
Keywords:Aetius Amidenus , Andreas of Carystus, Galen of Pergamon , Pharmacology
AbstractThe Libri medicinales by Aetius of Amida are an important source for many medical works lost today. This work includes many fragments of Herophilus' followers, first of all those by the ophthalmologist Demosthenes Philaletes. On the basis of careful examination of Aetius' unpublished books X and XIV, I suggest to ascribe two fragments to Andreas of Carystus. For the first time I present the Greek text of both: one on a plaster called “pardalis” to heal dropsy and a remedy for inflammation of the anal tract.
