"We have been waiting for a long time for an authoritative collection of this ancient material. Now we have more than we could have hoped for...Quite simply, von Staden's Herophilus is one of the finest and richest pieces of classical scholarship to have appeared in many years...Its impact, not only on the study of ancient medicine, but on science and philosophy is only beginning to be felt."

Vallance, Ancient Philosophy "One of the highest achievements of 20th Century scholarship in ancient Greek medicine" Paul Potter, University of Western Ontario, Bulletin of the History of Medicine
