Epitome on the nature of man. Edited by Robert Renehan. Corpus Medicorum Graecorum 10/4.

Berlin: De Gruyter, 1969.

Leo the Physician was a medical encyclopedist; traditionally dated to 9th century, but possibly as late as 12th–13th century CE. His Epitome survives in only one manuscript, possibly because Leo avoided theological discussions and streamlined his text for students who were probably learning medicine in the hospitals of Constantinople.
