Rappresentanti dell'arte medica e degli studi di medicina in Sicilia nell'età di Scribonio Largo: Apuleius Celsus, Paccius Anthiocus, Philonides Catinensis (2020)


The aim of this study is to investigate three authors quoted by Scribonius Largus in his "Compositiones": first, Apuleius Celsus, praeceptor of Scribonius and (Vettius) Valens; second, Paccius Antiochus, the author, among others compound medicines, of the renowned "Antidotos hiera"; third, Philonides Catinensis, whose auditor was Paccius. An outlook survey on Apuleius Celsus starting from a working hypothesis by Ioannes Rhodius, later neglected by this great academic, supplying new and sometimes surprising signs, contributing to an unpredictable proposal of identity. The three authors represent studies and activities between the end of the first century B.C. and the first century A.D., in the sphere of medicine in republican and imperial Sicily. With the help of passages in the writings of authors drawn on by Galen, aspects and characteristics of the three authors are highlighted.
