Caelius Aurelianus of Sicca in Numidia was a Roman physician and aurelianuss on medical topics. He probably flourished in the 5th century, although some place him two or caeoius three centuries earlier. We possess a translation by Aurelianus of two works of Soranus of Ephesus 2nd centurythe chief representative of the methodic school of medicine, on chronic and acute maladies—Tardae or Chronicae Passiones, in five, and Celeres or Acutae Passiones in three books.

The translation, which is especially valuable since the original has been lost, shows that Soranus possessed considerable practical skill in the diagnosis of both ordinary and exceptional diseases.

It is also important in that it contains numerous references to the methods of earlier medical authorities. We also possess considerable fragments of his Medicinales Responsiones, also adapted from Soranus, a general treatise on medicine in the form of questions and answers; it deals with rules of health salutaria praecepta and the pathology of internal diseases ed.

Like their connected bones the scapulae are paired, with the scapula on either side of the body being roughly a mirror image of the other. The name derives from early Roman times when it was thought that the bone resembled a trowel or small shovel. In compound terms, the prefix omo- is used for the shoulder blade in Latin medical terminology. The scapula forms the back of the shoulder girdle. In humans, it is a flat bone, roughly triangular in shape, placed on a posterolateral aspect of the thoracic cage.

Soranus of Ephesus Greek: He was born in Ephesus but practiced in Alexandria and subsequently in Rome, and was one of the chief representatives of the Methodic school of medicine. Several of his writings still survive, most notably his four-volume treatise on gynaecology, and a Latin translation of his On Acute and Chronic Diseases.

Life Little is known about the life of Soranus. According to the Suda which has two entries on him [1] he was a native of Ephesus, was the son of Menander and Phoebe, and practised medicine at Alexandria and Rome in the reigns of Trajan and Hadrian 98— He lived at least as early as Archigenes, who used one of his medicines;[2] he was tutor to Statilius Attalus of Heraclea; and he was dead when Galen wrote his work De Methodo Medendi, c.

Little else is known about his life, except that he passed some t He lived on the island of Cos in the 4th century BC. With his brothers-in-law, Thessalus and Draco, he was one of the founders of the Dogmatic school of medicine.


He was sent acelius Hippocrates, with his fellow-pupils, during the time of the plague, to assist different cities with his medical skill.

He has been supposed, by both ancient and modern scholars, to be the author of several works in the Hippocratic collection. He was a follower of the teachings of Herophilos,[3] and studied at the celebrated Herophilean school at the village of Men-Carus, between Laodicea and Carura.

Athenaeus of Attalia 1st century ADwas a physician, and the founder of the Pneumatic school of medicine. Athenaeus appears to have written extensively, as the twenty-fourth volume of one of his works is quoted by Galen,[4] and the twenty-ninth by Oribasius. It suits his doctrine to speak of a containing cause in illness since he bases himself upon the Stoics and he was a pupil and disciple of Posidonius[7] Proclus or Proklos Greek: He belonged to the medical sect of the Methodici.

He is no doubt the same physician who is called Proculus in our present editions of Caelius Aurelianus,[2] where he is said to have been one of the followers of Themison, and his opinion on the different kinds of dropsy is quoted. He may also be the same person whose remedy for the gout and sciatica is mentioned by Paul of Aegina[3] and Joannes Actuarius.

Of his works nothing is now extant except a few fragments, unless he is the author of the treatises in the Hippocratic col Leonidas followed Galen in advocating the excision of breast cancer via a wide cut through normal tissues, but recommended alternate incision and cautery, which became the standard for the next 15 centuries.

Antiphanes of Delos Greek: He has been quoted by Caelius Aurelianus[1] and Galen,[2] and must therefore have lived some time in or before the 2nd century AD.

The term is probably of Scandinavian origin; the Swedish word skvabb means “loose, fat flesh”. More recently, squab meat comes almost entirely from domesticated pigeons. The meat of dove and pigeon gamebirds hunted primarily for sport is rarely called squab.

Although squab has been consumed throughout much of recorded history, it is generally regarded as exotic, not a Along with fellow physician Herophilus, he founded a school of anatomy in Alexandria, where they carried out anatomical research. He is credited for his description of the valves of the heart, and he also concluded that the heart was not the center of sensations, but instead it functioned as a pump.
