520    The first edition of Ancient Medicine was the most 
       complete examination of the medicine of the ancient world 
       for a hundred years. The new edition includes the key 
       discoveries made since the first edition, especially from 
       important texts discovered in recent finds of papyri and 
       manuscripts, making it the most comprehensive and up-to-
       date survey available. Vivian Nutton pays particular 
       attention to the life and work of doctors in communities, 
       links between medicine and magic, and examines the 
       different approaches to medicine across the ancient world.
       The new edition includes more on Rufus and Galen as well 
       as augmented information on Babylonia, Hellenistic 
       medicine and Late Antiquity. With recently discovered 
       texts made accessible for the first time, and providing 
       new evidence, this broad exploration challenges currently 
       held perspectives, and proves an invaluable resource for 
       students of both classics and the history of medicine
