Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 B.C., learned medicine and philosophy and traveled widely as a medical doctor and teacher. Of the roughly 70 medical treatises collected under his name--the Hippocratic Collection--many are not by him; even the famous Hippocratic Oath (in Volume I of the Loeb edition) may not be his. But he was undeniably the "Father of Medicine." And the treatises in the Hippocratic Collection are essential sources of information about the practice of medicine in antiquity and about Greek theories concerning the human body.
