Philumeni De venenatis animalibus eorumque remediis et fragmenta

The first part of this research consists in a new edition of Philoumenos’ De venenatis animalibus eorumque remediis, supplemented with a commentary offering the possible explanations of the data involved in the text (zoological, botanical, toxicological, clinical, therapeutic and pharmacological). The second part of this research would be addressed to Philoumenos’ fragmentary work within the later medical literature, namely Oribasius and Aetius of Amida, as it is still unpublished. The entire project would both contribute to our knowledge of iologica and to a clearer determination of Philoumenos’ evanescent figure.
