Democritean,[1] philosopher. [He wrote works called] Inquiry and Medical Art. [The latter] has natural medical remedies from some resources of nature.
Greek Original:
*bw=los, *dhmo/kritos, filo/sofos. *(istori/an kai\ *te/xnhn i)atrikh/n. e)/xei de\ i)a/seis fusika\s a)po/ tinwn bohqhma/twn th=s fu/sews.
Bôlos the Democritean is now thought to be the same as Bôlos of Mendes (beta 482): see OCD(4) s.v. (p.239).
[1] The transmitted text simply says "Demokritos" (delta 447, delta 448); obviously what is needed is the adjective from that name, Demokriteios.
