Agapetus (physician)


Agapetus (physician)

Agapetus (Gr. polytonic|Ἀγαπητός) was an ancient Greek physician, whose remedy for the gout is mentioned with approbation by Alexander Trallianus [xi. p. 303] and Paulus Aegineta. [iii. 78, p. 497, vii. 11, p. 661] He probably lived between the third and sixth centuries after Christ, or certainly not later, as Alexander Trallianus, by whom he is quoted, is supposed to have flourished about the beginning of the sixth century.
