Greeks & Medicine

For those with an interest in medicine these heavily annotated editions of Hippocrates (Airs, Waters and Places + the famous oath) and Galenus (Three Treatises) edited by Stephen Nimis look really nice.

Those do look nice. I've read very little Greek medical writers, mostly because I haven't had a proper commentary. I have one Loeb, the one with the Oath, but the century old edition doesn't inspire me much.

There's another medical writer which looks quite interesting and is very little talked about; at least I know about it only because I accidently ran into him in a university library. I'm talking about Soranos' Gynecology. I have only leafed it a little, but it looked like something that has been overlooked for no reason.
