Hittite birth rituals. 2nd revised edition.Wiesbaden: Otto Harrassowitz, 1983.
"Owing to a paucity of relevant sources, we know rather little about Hittite medical practice, but it is clear that native therapies relied as much on magic as upon what moderns would recognize as medicine. Practitioners from Babylonia and Egypt, whose expertise was acknowledged to be superior to that of local physicians, were welcome at the Hittite court" (G.
