Medicine and Markets : Essays on Ancient Medicine in honour of Vivian Nutton

Description

The study of ancient medicine has been revolutionised over the
last half century and Vivian Nutton has been a leading figure. Here
distinguished colleagues and former students offer essays in his
honour, developing themes from his ground-breaking scholarship.
The book explores the diversity of the ancient medical marketplace.
From the Bronze Age to Classical Antiquity (with glimpses forward to
the Digital Age), from the cult of Artemis to the corpuscular theories
of Asclepiades of Bithynia, from the medicinal uses of beavers to the
cost of healthcare and wet-nursing, and from remedy exchange to the
medical repercussions of political assassination.
