Headword: Ἱπποκράται
Adler number: iota,568
Translated headword: Hippocrateses, Hippokrateses
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Two [Hippocrateses], 5 and 6,[1] physicians, sons of Thymbraeus,[2] also from Cos, and of the same family. Both wrote [contributions] to the same science.
Greek Original:
Ἱπποκράται δύο, ε# καὶ #2#, ἰατροί, Θυμβραίου παῖδες, Κῷοι καὶ αὐτοί, τοῦ γένους αὐτοῦ. ἔγραψαν ἀμφότεροι εἰς τὴν αὐτὴν ἐπιστήμην.
Notes:
[1] In the sequence beginning, here, with iota 565.
[2] Even if *the* Hippocrates (iota 564) was very famous, it sounds bizarre for someone to give his two sons the same name! A "case of Hippocratomania". (Jouanna, p.46) Whether this Thymbraeus did belong to the famous family is not known.
