Advances in Mesopotamian Medicine from Hammurabi to Hippocrates
edited by Annie Attia and Gilles Buisson, with the collaboration of Markham J. Geller
This volume, which originated with a conference at the Collège de France, comprises contributions by many of the leading researchers in Babylonian and Assyrian medicine. A wealth of topics are studied, including medical lexicography, prosopography, and technology, economic aspects of healing, and Mesopotamian influence on Greece. First-time editions of cuneiform medical tablets are presented. The volume will interest scholars in many branches of Assyriology, and also historians of Greek medicine.
