Paul of Aegina

   Physician whose seventh-century Epitome of Medicine, based on Hippocrates, Galen, and Oribasios (qq.v.), remained the chief medical text in Byzantium (q.v.). It exerted considerable influence on Islamic and European medicine through translations into Arabic and Latin. The sections on pharmacology and on surgery were particularly influential.
