Example text

180; also cf. Uoyd, 1975, p. 176). Since it is difficult all the same to accept that Galen fabricates one hundred per cent of the time, it is thought that Ctesias is alluding or could be alluding to an earlier work and that it is Galen who, identifying the designated procedure in a passage of Joints, attributes to Ctesias a criticism of Hippocrates. We certainly know that there existed in the fifth century a vast medical literature, but our surest proof of it, the author of the Regimen, talks of dietetic works and we know from other sources as well that preoccupations of this kind are very ancient in Greece (see Joly, 1967, p.

Xi passim). But on a subject as limited and technical as Fractures-Joints, the situation may be very different and the probability is, I think, quite the opposite. And then to accept that another work had shown the same reduction considered however by Ctesias to be useless does not increase the probability. It seems to me that one cannot 'ignore' (Smith, 1979, p. 179) Galen's evidence concerning Ctesias except by giving proof of bias. I do not claim that the passage furnished proof but it is difficult to accept that it does not provide a strong probability.
