In this book the writer gives the complete Greek text and translation of a Greek medical papyrus, whose code name is Anonymus Londinensis. It was written in the second century A.D. in the style of a student comparing various authorities and schools of thought. Anyone who enjoys reading Hippocrates will appreciate this fragment. The author accompanies it with brief, but scholarly essays on Greek thought and medicine, as well as a carefully documented introduction to this text. This book represents a real addition to the source material of Greek medicine.
