COMMENTARY
ON THE MEDICAL VOCABULARY OF HIPPOCRATES
BY “PERHAPS THE GREATEST ANATOMIST OF HIS TIME”


EUSTACHI, Bartolomeo / EROTIANUS / HIPPOCRATES. Erotiani Graeci scriptoris vetustissimi vocum, apud Hippocratem sunt, collectio. Venice, apud Lucam Antonium Juntam, 1566.

First edition of the renowned physician Bartolomeo Eustachi’s (c. 1500-1574) commentary on the Vocum of Erotianus (active c. 50-70 A.D.) an ancient collection of words found in the corpus of Hippocrates (c. 460-370 B.C.). A contemporary of Andreas Vesalius (1514-64), with whom he shares the distinction of having created the science of human anatomy, Eustachi was “perhaps the greatest anatomist of his time, and probably no other anatomist, ancient or modern, has made so many discoveries” (Thomas, p. 877).
