AN UNPUBLISHED EPIGRAM ON HIPPOCRATES

Jacques Jouanna, Alessia Guardasole

Abstract


In this paper we publish the editio princeps of a Greek epigram dedicated
to Hippocrates, that we found in two manuscripts, Laurent. Plut. 74.13
and Paris. Gr. 2596. The epigram has been written in connection with
the two most renowned Hippocratic treatises, Oath and Aphorisms. The
edition is linked with a context analysis from two different points of view:
the epigrammatic production and its relevance in Byzantine times and the
reading and interpretation of medical (mostly Hippocratic) tradition in the
same period.
