Review quote

A fascinating view of the paleopathologist at work... [Grmek] has obviously made a major contribution both to his own special field and to the understanding of the archaeological finds and literary remains of antiquity. -- Phillip de Lacy Classical World Any student or scholar who wishes to pursue almost any topic in the field of disease in ancient Greece will find this book invaluable. Times Literary Supplement
