Abstract: This book is an ambitious attempt to chart the impact of ideas about disease, its provenance and treatment, upon all facets of the Greek imagination, from the Archaic to the Graeco‐Roman period. The scope is truly impressive: Lloyd moves nimbly between literature and historiography to philosophy, religion, and politics, as well as medical theory itself.
