Demosthenes in [the] Philippics [sc. uses the word].[1] Recurrent diseases are what doctors call those which remit and return again in a set manner, every fourth day and suchlike. For sufferers from these seem to have no illness on the days of the remissions, but to be in good health.
Greek Original:
Περίοδος: Δημοσθένης Φιλιππικοῖς. περιοδικὰ νοσήματα καλοῦσιν οἱ ἰατροὶ τὰ τεταγμένως ἀνιέμενα καὶ αὖθις ἐπιγινόμενα, οἷον τριταίους, τεταρταίους καὶ τὰ ὅμοια. καὶ γὰρ ἐπὶ τούτων οἱ κάμνοντες δοκοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς τῶν ἀνέσεων ἡμέραις μηδὲ νοσεῖν, ἀλλ' ὑγιεῖς εἶναι.
