Abstract

This is the frontispiece image to the Latin edition of the complete works of Hippocrates (c. 460-370 BC), the ‘Father of Medicine’, published in Geneva by Samuel Chouet in 1657. The Latin text reads: ‘Hippocrates, son of Cos and descendant of Hercules, lived in the time of the Peloponnesian War: he gave a most learned explication of the Apollonian art and was the glory of Cos, his homeland.’ (Apollo is the Ancient Greek God of healing)
