The Graeco-Roman Memoirs Vol. 101 The Oxyrhynchus Papyri 80.
Edited with translations and notes by M. Hirt, D. Leith and W. B. Henry.
The volume contains texts studied in the course of the project “New Medical Papyri from Oxyrhynchus”, funded by the Wellcome Trust. These include known medical texts by Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Galen, but also new material: texts from the 1st to 3rd/4th centuries on acute diseases, medical recipes, surgical texts, and doctors' reports. It is the first major collection of medical papyri from a single place, amplifying Peter Parson's magisterial account of medicine, health and disease at Oxyrhynchus, City of the Sharp-Nosed Fish: Greek Lives in Roman Egypt of 2007.
