Vetting Status: high
The exceptionally distinguished doctor; of Pergamum. Lived under the emperors Marcus, Commodus and Pertinax in Rome. Son of Nicon, a geometer and architect[1]. He composed many works on medicine and philosophy, and also on grammar and rhetoric; because they are familiar to everyone, I have not thought it necessary to catalogue them here. He died aged 70.
[The adjective galenos] also means 'peaceful'.[2]
