About this item

Presented with facing Latin text, this is the first English translation and an up-to-date commentary of the Medicina Plinii, a late antique book on self-medication for travellers, adapted from Pliny’s Natural History, which became one of the most influential books of applied medicine and self-medication in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. It is of dual interest to present-day scholarship: it is a monument for the practical application of classical knowledge which has recently found lively interest in the history of science and medicine. It also provides a fascinating insight into the realities of the world of late antiquity, and into the anxieties of the people living in the vast Roman empire.
