Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aegimus or Aegimius was one of the most ancient of the Greek physicians, who is said by Galen to have been the first person who wrote a treatise on the pulse. He was a native of Velia in Lucania, and is supposed to have lived before the time of Hippocrates, that is, in the 5th century BC. His work was entitled (Lat. De Palpitationibus, a name which alone sufficiently indicates its antiquity), which is no longer extant. Callimachus mentions an author named "Aegimius," who wrote a work on the art of making cheesecakes, and Pliny the Elder mentions a person of the same name who was said to have lived two hundred years; but whether these are the same or different individuals is quite uncertain.show more
