Review Quotes

This commentary is clearly the work of someone with a profound understanding of both the language and content of the Hippocratic corpus, and ancient Greek medicine generally. Craik's Hippocratic Treatise On Glands is precisely the kind of volume I wish I possessed for each of the treatises in the Hippocratic corpus. Robert Mayhew in Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2009.11.04


All those interested in Hippocratic medicine, history of medicine, ancient science, classical philology
